Macmillan Support for Primary Care
Macmillan has produced a number of toolkits, guidance documents and online training modules to support GPs as they connect with cancer patients from early diagnosis through to after treatment, and at end-of-life. Supporting resources for people with cancer have also been developed to help effective signposting and to shape the future of primary care.
Macmillan Virtual Multi-Disciplinary Team (VMDT)
The vMDT is a secure online forum providing healthcare professionals quick and easy access to multi-specialist advice for their patients complex or severe chronic symptoms following cancer treatment. The aim is to improve the outcomes and quality of life for people experiencing these issues. Healthcare professionals (including GPs) who refer their patients to the vMDT will receive a response within two weeks, helping shared decision making regarding future care.
