RM Partners is developing a series of projects focusing on achieving earlier diagnosis through improving cancer awareness in primary care.
Improving screening in marginalised groups
Together with Kingston Public Health, we are piloting the approach of utilising a community development worker to help improve cancer screening rates for marginalised groups, such as people with learning difficulties.
We are working with the North West London Cancer Primary Care Board to pilot an electronic cancer safety netting tool in primary care. The aim is to ensure that patients at higher risk of cancer are monitored and followed up to reduce the number of emergency presentations, and to increase the number of cancers detected at an earlier stage.
