NICE Guideline updated to support GP’s and help diagnose cancer faster

NICE

NICE has updated and redesigned its guideline to support GP’s in recognising the signs and symptoms of 37 different cancers and to aid faster referral  for the right tests.

The guideline focuses on the symptoms that a patient might experience and present with in surgeries. It should enable GP’s to monitor people presenting with less severe symptoms, so that fewer cancers are missed.

NICE hope that the guideline will make its recommendations easier for GP’s to use, speeding  up the referral process and make diagnosis quicker.
