Delivering the early diagnosis of cancer PCN specification: getting started and learning from others – briefing

The ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan could mean 55,000 more people a year survive their cancer for at least five years after their diagnosis by 2028 through early diagnosis.

Primary care – and primary care networks (PCNs) – will be vital in this drive. Ahead of the early diagnosis specification’s ‘relaunch’ and the new Snomed codes for safety netting being introduced on 1 October 2020, this briefing produced by the NHS Confederation’s PCN Network and Cancer Research UK looks at what the requirements are, the challenges PCNs face and provides a wealth of practical advice, top tips and a case study.
