Richard Neal • 27 Jan 2017

Richard Neal, MB, ChB, PhD, FRCGP, from the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, Leeds, UK, discusses the CanTest program at the European Cancer Congress of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. CanTest is a funding award from Cancer Research UK, involving 4 hubs in the UK, in Exeter, Cambridge, UCL, and Leeds, as well as 4 abroad, in Australia, the USA and Denmark. The funding is for a five-year program of work to shift diagnostic testing from secondary care to primary. This will be done by adapting current tests, as well as developing novel ones to find the most accurate and effective tests.
