The Cancer Research UK GP Contract Hub
Coming Spring 2020: The Cancer Research UK GP Contract Hub
The QOF Quality Improvement (QI) module on cancer early diagnosis, and the Primary Care Network (PCN) early diagnosis of cancer specification both recognise the pivotal role that GPs play in diagnosing cancer earlier and support the NHS Long-Term Plan ambition to diagnose 75% of cancers at stage 1 or 2 by 2028, an increase from just over half now.
With a focus on screening uptake, referral practices (and audit e.g. the National Cancer Diagnosis Audit) and safety netting, they encourage quality improvement at individual practice level, as well as across the PCN and wider system.
The aim of the CRUK GP contract hub is to help practices and PCNs deliver on these GP contract requirements.
