This toolkit was developed in collaboration with partners who are members of the Primary Care Cancer and Education Group (PCCEG). The group is chaired by the Transforming Cancer Services Team and has members from Cancer Alliances, STPs, Charity Partners, Health Education England and Patient Representatives.
PCCEG acts as an implementation group to develop approaches and resources for primary and community care (education, providers and commissioners) to embed best practice regarding cancer.
Led by the TCST, the group’s work covers developments for primary and community care within:
- Prevention and early diagnosis – population awareness, improving access to primary care, reducing variation in cancer outcomes and improving access to diagnostics and treatment
- Personalised care for cancer – cancer care reviews, cancer as a long term condition including consequences of treatment and primary care led/shared care stratified follow up pathways
- Workforce development needs – training needs analyses, education & training
The PCCEG will not replicate the work conducted by the Early Diagnosis Advisory Group (EDAG), the Personalised Care for Cancer Partnership Board (PC4C PB) and their respective subgroups. Rather, the Primary Care Cancer and Education Group will provide an interface to ensure there is synergy across the the education and development agendas for both the Early Diagnosis Advisory Group and the Personalised Care for Cancer Partnership Board.
