Cancer Therapy

The Cancer Care Support Review (CCSR) is carried out by the GP practice within three months of a diagnosis of cancer. Continued annually, it helps the person affected by cancer to understand what information and support is available to them, and enables supported self-management.

The Surgery will contact patients to arrange a review but if you wish to speak with one of our clinicians before this time please contact our reception staff on 01827 713664 to book a routine appointment where you will be assessed, we will offer you advice, any queries you have will be answered and a correct management plan will be ensured.

Cancer Research UK

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or know someone who has, Cancer Research UK provide practical information on everything from symptoms and screening, to coping after treatment.

Cancer Research UK was formed 20 years ago, in 2002. However, their history goes back much further, to 1902, with the founding of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. Their pioneering work into how to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer has benefitted millions of lives over the past 120 years.

  • They have helped develop 8 of the world’s top 10 cancer drugs
  • They have proven the link between tobacco and cancer
  • They have shown the value of screening and early detection

Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest independent funder of cancer research, funding research in 39 countries. They do this because cancer is a global issue. The burden worldwide is on the rise, with 19.3 million new cases diagnosed in 2020 globally and 29.5 million new cases projected for 2040.

Their work to reduce global cancer burden with their partners includes:

  • Working with civil societies and research institutes around the world to grow a policy evidence base which can be used to call for regional, national or local change that will prevent cancer incidence in low- and middle- income countries
  • Supporting world-class cancer research that brings together the best minds from around the globe to tackle cancer’s biggest challenges
  • Partnering with and learning from organisations and government agencies within Europe who share our mission of beating cancer sooner
  • Collaborating across multiple disciplines and continents to research and improve differences in outcomes for people with cancer
