London Cancer and the Transforming Cancer Services Team, Healthy London Partnership (TCST) are working in collaboration to support GPs by providing practical solutions that address the need for rigorous safety netting in primary care.

Our cancer safety netting toolkit can be used by GPs faced with various cancer related clinical situations. The toolkit provides a template based on diary entries attached to READ Codes.

The toolkit runs searches on a regular basis that checks if diary entries have been completed. A flag is then assigned to any incomplete entries so that these can be easily identified and finished.

We have now completed our feasibility study on the toolkit and have updated the toolkit to reflect the learning from this study. The above video is demonstrating the original version for the feasibility study and will be replaced with the current version of the toolkit.

The toolkit is being rolled out to wider GP practices in London using Emis Web for the next phase of the pilot study.
