Significant Event Audit: Cancer Pilot
The significant event audit (SEA) pilot project is a joint initiative between the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), the National Cancer Action Team (NCAT) and Macmillan. The project builds on the work undertaken in the National Audit of Cancer Diagnosis in Primary Care.
The overall aim of this project is to enable GPs within the participating Cancer Networks to have their SEAs relating to cancer in primary care peer reviewed. This should encourage reflection and learning around cancer both at an individual and practice level, and can contribute to the annual appraisal process for individual GPs. The peer reviewers are nominated Network Cancer leads who have undergone a quality assured training process.
The team for this project is led by Professor Greg Rubin (RCGP Clinical Cancer Lead), Professor Una Macleod (North East Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Alliance) and Dr Alison Wint (Avon, Somerset and Wiltshire). Support for the assessment process comes from Dr John McKay.
The Cancer Networks participating in this pilot are:
Avon, Somerset and Wiltshire
Greater Manchester and Cheshire
North East Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Alliance
Lancashire and South Cumbria
Merseyside and Cheshire
North of England
North West London
