Our GP Advisory Board brings together leading GPs from around the UK, with the aim of improving outcomes in early diagnosis for women.
With expertise in symptoms research, health economics, access to diagnostics and GP education, the Board will advise and shape our future work increasing early diagnosis and reducing risk.
GP Advisory Board aims
- To support the development and implementation of Target Ovarian Cancer's primary care strategy, including advising on new and existing GP resources
- To work with Target Ovarian Cancer to monitor the impact of new commissioning structures on ovarian cancer services, particularly in relation to supporting access to appropriate diagnostic tests and earlier diagnosis
- To advise Target Ovarian Cancer on how it can support GPs involved in ovarian cancer symptoms campaigns (as part of the Be Clear on Cancer programme) at local, regional and national level.
