Impact of the CRUK GP clinical leadership programme
Our influencing work with decision makers aims for greater emphasis on the early diagnosis of cancer. CRUK GPs provide regional clinical leadership by ensuring there is GP input into decisions affecting early diagnosis. They offer support through sharing best practice, strategic primary care resources and educational materials.
What do others think about CRUK GPs?
Cancer Alliance Managers really value the strategic input of the CRUK at Cancer Alliance Board discussion and decision-making:
An independent evaluation of the CRUK GP programme carried out in 2017 found that
- The CRUK GPs have been involved in driving change, implementing QI and piloting innovation
- There is a pressing need for GP representation at strategic level
- The GPs have been effective in driving quality improvements and supporting the implementation of these changes throughout large and complex geographies
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:
