BCW leads successful training for west country GPs
Lead by key members of the colorectal team at Derriford Hospital, BCW ran a crucial training evening for west country GPs to raise awareness around the cancer pathway. It was thanks to funding from generous donors that BCW was able to put on the event and they are planning to do more in the future. Topics discussed ranged from: Fitness for surgery, stoma care in the community, Pre-operative staging, cancer treatments (radiotherapy and chemotherapy) and palliative care, follow up and the two-week wait pathway.
