Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) is the world’s largest independent cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. In 2017/18, we spent £423 million on research and £41 million on information, policy and communications outreach, including working with the NHS.

Our health professional engagement looks to support innovation, accelerate the implementation of best practice, and to reduce variation, in order to improve cancer outcomes. We support GPs, the wider primary care team and more recently Primary Care Networks, focusing on cancer prevention and early diagnosis. CRUK wants to accelerate progress so that 3 in 4 people survive their cancer for 10 years or more by 2034.

We offer a range of opportunities for GPs, including regional support through our training workshops and network of GP leads, and have a local offer to GP practices through our Facilitator programme. In addition, we offer free online education resources specifically designed for GPs and other health professionals as well as patient materials.
