This study aims to determine if selected "critical information" is included in reports on two week wait (TWW) to indicate if it is achieving its aim. There is some evidence that gastroenterologists perceive that the TWW has been a negative service development. Gastroenterologists who report their experience with the TWW either perceive it as a negative development, or as having a mixed impact on service provision. One paper concluded that the TWW was an exclusively positive development, nine that it was detrimental, and eleven papers that TWW brought benefit and harm in tandem.
