Transforming primary and community care services for Londoners living with and beyond cancer

The Transforming Cancer Services Team for London and Macmillan Cancer Support are pleased to host an event looking at how we can improve the lives of the 223,500 people currently living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis in London.

As more people survive cancer, London continues to have the poorest outcomes in the UK.

  • There is low awareness of cancer treatment as a risk factor for cardiovascular and bone health among London GPs and primary care nurses and fewer than 6% of GPs and 4% of nurses had received general education on the consequences of cancer treatment (TCST, Training Needs Assessment, 2017)

  • 70% of cancer patients have one or more long term conditions (Macmillan, 2015)

  • 15 months after diagnosis, people with cancer have 60% more accident and emergency (A&E) attendances and 97 % more emergency admissions (Nuffield Trust, 2014)

  • Cancer survivors having 50% more contact with their GPs than expected 15 months after diagnosis (Nuffield Trust, 2014)

The programme for each event will be divided into 2 sections: the morning educational session for primary and community care health professionals and the afternoon strategic session for commissioners and STP leads.

Please note, the events are repeated on the 29th June (Unison Building, Euston), 11th July (Coin Street, Waterloo) and 13th July (BMA House, Euston) and you are only expected to attend one of the dates and sessions that more suits you. If you wish to attend both the morning educational session as well as the afternoon strategic session, please order both ticket types.
