Abstract

The early treatment of patients with bladder cancer reduces mortality. By arranging a pre-clinic intravenous urogram we reduced the time from receipt of the General Practitioner's referral letter to making a diagnosis from 85 to 67 days and saved on clinic time and resources. A further reduction to 52 days was made by not using any out-patient time at all. Significant saving of time and resources is possible without any disadvantage to the patient.
