Research will help GPs detect cancer

Researchers at the University of Leeds are to receive a share of £5m in funding from Cancer Research UK to improve early cancer detection in GP surgeries.

Professor Richard Neal of Leeds Institute of Health Sciences will work with researchers in three other major UK Universities as well as institutions across the world on a five-year project to help GPs detect cancers in a primary care setting and reduce the burden of referrals.
