Local initiatives


CRUK facilitators and GP hub

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) facilitators are working in NCL to support primary care networks (PCNs) to improve cancer outcomes for their patients and help fulfil their early diagnosis and DES requirements. CRUK facilitators can support your network with Quality Improvement activities on prevention, early diagnosis and screening. To invite your CRUK Facilitator along to your PCN meeting to hear more about what we can provide and how we can support you, please email londonfacilitators@cancer.org.uk or Bethany Shaw directly on bethany.shaw@cancer.org.uk

The CRUK GP Contract Hub is also now updated with 2021/22 cancer guidance.
