The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has identified cancer as an ‘enduring priority’, intended to signal recognition of its importance as a clinical issue for GPs.

The partnership has enabled each organisation to positively influence the other to strengthen the role of primary care in cancer control.

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has identified cancer as an ‘enduring priority’, intended to signal recognition of its importance as a clinical issue for GPs.

Since 2012, Cancer Research UK have been working in partnership with the RCGP to promote models of best practice and pathways of care and develop learning and educational resources.

The main purpose of this Clinical Priority project is, through a range of educational events, resources, information, advice, and influencing, to:

  • Raise awareness about the pivotal role of general practice in cancer control
  • Improve the capacity and capability of general practice to ensure appropriate recognition, management and referral of patients in primary care
  • Ensure that cancer control in primary care reflects the changing landscape of primary care, maximise this opportunities this presents, and aligns with the General Practice Forward View

The Cancer Clinical Priority is part of the wider RCGP Clinical Innovation and Research Centre (CIRC) priority programme.

The partnership between CRUK and the RCGP has enabled each organisation to positively influence the other to strengthen the role of primary care in cancer control, and has allowed us to achieve much more together than would have been possible separately.

The evaluation of this programme is ongoing, and the impact will be measured by a variety of means.
