Prof Kathy Pritchard-Jones - University College London, London, UK

Pritchard-Jones talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about her work looking at why so many people in the UK are not diagnosed with cancer until they are admitted to A & E departments.

Her study comprised of a one year follow up of nearly 1000 patients diagnosed with cancer in 2013, and was motivated in particular by the levels of late diagnosis in North-East London.

She wants to see people with worrying symptoms being seen by their GPs and referred for tests much sooner. Their current strategy for NHS England is that patients should be seen, tested, and diagnosed within four weeks.
