Among the recommendations of the recently released NICE NG12 is a primary care symptom-led approach to earlier diagnosis of cancer, with a lowering of the threshold of suspected cancer referral from 5% to 3%.

A team of GP cancer leads, commissioners and public health officials met recently to reflect on the implications for primary and secondary care, and to share tips and tools for its implementation.
