CRUK staff support the CRUK GP ‘community of practice’ which provides an excellent networking and sharing opportunity for the GPs, and is highly valued by the GPs and their respective Cancer Alliances:
“Heterogenous, approachable, innovative and generous group with wide ranging experience and ideas. The benefits are enormous."
“The community of GPs can provide a wide depth of knowledge and insights which helps us develop a clear unified message."
“The support when things are tough has been great. There has nearly always been someone else who has previously struggled with an issue and we have all really helped each other out and made great suggestions of solutions."
“It has been great – peer support, knowledgeable colleagues, sharing uncertainties, learning (and copying) influencing techniques, being there for colleagues at their times of uncertainty, keeping up to date, being challenged by the achievements of others and realising we could do that too."
