NCCP Consultations

From time to time, the NCCP conducts consultations as a method of seeking views on our work.  We believe that public consultation provides an important means by which we can enhance our work through the active involvement and contribution from stakeholders working in cancer care, patients and members of the public. All consultation responses are read and considered by the NCCP staff.

    Open Consultations

    National Breast Cancer GP Referral Guideline

    The NCCP has coordinated the update of the National Breast Cancer GP Referral Guideline. A Guideline Development Group was convened to review the body of evidence in the context of patient preferences and values, and potential benefits and harms, and to make recommendations to inform the development of the guideline.

    The resulting draft guideline is now available for public consultation. The draft guideline and feedback form are available at the links below. Please use the designated feedback form to submit any comments, and return to by 23 August 2019, ensuring that you also complete the Conflict of Interest Declaration found at the end of the feedback form.

     Feedback is welcomed from all stakeholders.
