Many people with cancer have other long term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes but we know very little about how having another condition impacts on people living with cancer.
The main aims of this research are to:
- describe the group of people who have both cancer and other conditions
- find out how often these people visit GPs or other health services compared to people with cancer alone.
Using anonymised data from GP surgeries, we will find out what other conditions people with cancer have and which patients are more or less likely to visit GPs or other health services.
This will help GPs and health services to become more aware of these patients and their needs and allow us to make suggestions to inform primary care and future research.Close
