GP Practice Visits

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We have created a central resources hub for Health Professionals which hosts all of our CRUK resources and further materials to help with managing the pandemic. We are updating the information as guidance changes. There is also a page specifically for patients on our about cancer hub.

Our GP Practice visits are at the core of our offer and they have proven to be highly effective. These visits create the opportunity for practices to focus on cancer and enable them to embed quality improvement. They allow an interactive focus on that practice and create time for discussion.

An effective practice visit involves us:

  • meeting the whole team at a time to suit their workloads - for example over lunch
  • reviewing their position with them and tailor follow-up support based on the practice’s own priorities
  • arranging an interactive discussion about cancer, their data and ideas for improvement
  • following up with training, advice and resources

Most importantly:

  • 99% of practice visit attendees would recommend them to their colleagues
  • 96% of attendees plan to take action to improve their result
“I would encourage anyone to invite them in. Their approach is educational, not telling us what we should do but discussing it with us and what might be helpful in our practice.” - GP
“We are so busy that if it's not given to us, it's unlikely that will have the time to go and dig something out…The fact that they were able to come to us with all the figures and toolkits was great. To be honest, much more useful than I expected.” - GP
"Incredibly insightful, knowledgeable and supportive. As a result of working closely with a CRUK Facilitator, performance is my current practice has been enhanced at a quicker rate and visits are much more efficient in Bowel Screening which has resulted in positive outcomes." - Public Health practitioner
