Key questions on implementing the NICE cancer guidelines

Module summary
In this module, Professor Willie Hamilton provides his views and practical suggestions on how GPs can implement the NG12 guideline
Learning objectives

This module provides a range of practical approaches to implement the NICE suspected cancer guideline NG12, including:

  • Increased awareness of the key changes between the previous guideline CG27 and NG12
  • Increased confidence of managing patients who do not meet the referral criteria to support clinical decision making.
  • Increased awareness of the recommendations on safety netting and supporting patients through a suspected cancer referral to improve patient experience
  • Increased familiarity with different approaches to improving communication between primary and secondary care.

In January Cancer Research UK commissioned a roundtable discussion with delegates from across the cancer pathway to discuss implementation of the NICE guideline for the referral and recognition of suspected cancer (NG12). The discussion aimed to identify barriers and practical tips for implementation. The key questions within this module have been distilled from this roundtable discussion.

My recent personal experiences of 2ww referral to NNUH ( norfolk & norwich university hospital) for dysphagia were most instructive indeed

.. mostly positive pathway from gp visit to procedure
.. but badly let down by HOSPITAL safety netting of gastric biopsy results

The uk can, and must do better in cancer diagnosis and care league table, inevitably this will create more anxiety all round. Luckily there are several reputable organisations supporting all parties in the challenging process of improved pathways.

These improvements to poor joined up thinking are long, long overdue
