Primary care cancer toolkit

This toolkit provides a collection of key resources about cancer prevention, diagnosis and care relevant for the primary care setting.

Introduction

The Primary Care Cancer Toolkit has been developed by the RCGP in collaboration with Cancer Research UK as part of our partnership to raise awareness and knowledge of the role of primary care in cancer control. It is designed for use by primary healthcare professionals in the UK. If you are accessing these resources from outside the UK, bear in mind that guidelines and systems may be different.

Resources are split into professional and patient sections. Professional resources consist of guidelines, information and tools aimed at those working in primary healthcare. Those within the patient section are websites, information leaflets and other resources aimed at a public audience which a healthcare professional can signpost patients to during or post consultation.

This toolkit was produced as part of the RCGP and Cancer Research UK Cancer Clinical Priority Partnership which ended in March 2020.
