Referrer Guidelines 

 

Many GPs ask “when should we organise a scan” or ”when should we refer”. We have therefore put together some referral guidelines to assist: 

BACK OR NECK PAIN WITH SCIATICA OR RADICULOPATHY  

 

MRI SCAN IF: 

  • leg or arm pain not improving 

  • significant weakness 

  • symptoms of cauda equina dysfunction (urgent) 

  • history of cancer 

  • symptoms suggestive of infection (urgent) 

 

REFER IF: 

  • Significant arm or leg pain or weakness

  • suspected cauda equina syndrome (extremely urgent- send referral and call rooms) 

  • suspected spinal abscess (extremely urgent- send referral and call rooms) 

  • suspected or proven tumour 

·       Persistent neck or back pain 

 

 

BRAIN TUMOURS 

Any intracranial pathology, refer for MRI scan, send referral and call rooms. We will aim to see them urgently.
