GP cancer leads

There are a number of GPs across the Network that lead in cancer care.  As CCGs are established they are appointing cancer and end of life leads.  The Network will work with these leads to facilitate collaborative working and ensure best practice is shared across CCGs. 

The Network funds GP sessional time to promote early diagnosis.  Macmillan also funds a number of GP posts within the Network.  Please contact the Network if you would like to update details below or would like further information.
