Cancer services have resumed to normal following the peak of the pandemic in February 2021. Investigations for suspicion of cancer and all treatments for cancer including surgery and chemotherapy are running as they were pre-Covid, with additional safety measures in place to reduce risk of infection and support social distancing.
RM Partners is back to working full time on programmes to transform cancer services, with a specific focus on reducing the impact of pandemic on patient care and outcomes.
Early diagnosis of cancer offers opportunities for the best outcome, and the NHS is encouraging anyone with symptoms they are concerned about to contact their GP practice.
GP surgeries are able to offer online consultations and telephone triage as well as face-to-face appointments. If you have any symptoms that you are worried may be a sign of cancer, please contact your GP practice.
