Macmillan Cancer Support and NAPC – PCN’s role in delivering personalised care for people living with cancer
NAPC and Macmillan Cancer Support are working with a number of primary care home sites to enhance care and support for people living with cancer. The primary care home model has been seen to be particularly effective in providing enhanced and personalised cancer care because of its focus on team-based and integrated working across primary, community and secondary care. Primary care homes involved in this project have received specialist training from Macmillan and implemented Macmillan’s Quality Toolkit for Cancer Care in Primary Care and the ‘Right By You’ model – both of which aim to provide seamless and personalised care to cancer patients at primary care level. This session will provide an overview of the project from Macmillan and will include updates from St Austell Healthcare and Granta Primary Care Homes on how they introduced the project, the challenges they faced and lessons learnt.
