A pilot initiative for general practice supported by the National Cancer Action Team and Macmillan Cancer Care.
Cancer and the RCGP
The RCGP has made cancer its first enduring clinical priority, recognising the importance of high quality care for patients with cancer and those in whom it is suspected.Cancer is an important clinical issue for GPs. Although a GP will, on average, see only 8 new cases each year, he or she will consider the possibility during the consultation on a daily basis, sometimes ordering investigations to clarify the situation. It continues to be a diagnosis overlaid with great emotional significance for both patient and doctor, one that greatly exercises the diagnostic and management skills of general practice.
The College has appointed a Clinical Lead for Cancer, in collaboration with Cancer Research UK, thus signalling the scale of its commitment. He is Professor Greg Rubin (email@example.com)
