About this guide

General practice has never been under so much pressure. With an ageing population comes an increasing incidence and prevalence of cancer, so it is important that GP practices are encouraged to improve the quality of care that people with cancer receive.

This toolkit contains suggestions of how the quality of cancer care can be improved. It is divided into six modules:

  • - Screening for cancer
  • - Prompt recognition and early referral
  • - Access to appointments and advice
  • - Cancer Care Reviews
  • - Late effects of cancer and consequences of treatment
  • - Anticipatory Care Planning and sharing of information.

We have also created a poster on improving cancer care in primary care (Scotland).
