Pan London General Practice Nurses Community of Practice
The Macmillan Primary Care Nursing Project, in collaboration with the Transforming Cancer Services Team, have supported the establishment of a Pan London General Practice Nurse Community of Practice in managing cancer as a long-term condition. This group will support the growth of clinical leadership. The group currently has 52 nurse members from across 5 London STPs and meets on a quarterly basis.
The group have worked collaboratively with NHSE, and Macmillan to develop the role of the General Practice Nurse in relation to cancer and have established connections with their local cancer colleagues. Members have created a number of resources including a draft business case to be used by members and other General Practice Nurses to encourage change in practice.
