The London and South East Sarcoma Network (LSESN) is a collaboration of two specialist sarcoma centres, their referring trusts, and supporting commissioners. Over the last 5 years LSESN Sarcoma Advisory Group has developed referral, diagnostic and treatment pathways to cover a population of approximately 17 million residents. The LSESN website was created to publish and increase awareness of the pathways and supporting guidelines, including information on site-specific sarcomas.
The LSESN and its website are examples of the implementation of a number of recommendations within the NICE Improving Outcomes Guidance (IOG) for people with Sarcoma and the NICE Quality Standards for Sarcoma, in particular statements 1, 2 and 3 around the development and publication of referral and diagnostic pathways, multi-disciplinary team working and designation by the Sarcoma Advisory Group.
