Cancer Care Review
Under their contracts all GPs are required to carry out a Cancer Care Review within six months of receiving confirmation of a patient having a cancer diagnosis.
This offers an opportunity for the GP to explain their role in supporting and giving information to patients and their families throughout the illness. This gives you an opportunity to discuss any concerns or further support you might need.
Macmillan Cancer Support has developed an electronic template for GPs to use as the Cancer Care Review is different to other reviews for long-term conditions by GPs. The cancer alliance has further developed this to incorporate local guidance.
