National Cancer Genetics MDT

The National Cancer Genetics MDT (UKCGG National CGM) is a collaboration between the CanGene-CanVar Programme and the UK Cancer Genetics Group (UKCGG), which aims to create a regular national forum to discuss complex cancer genetics cases, improve patient management and expand clinical knowledge. 

 

For patient confidentiality and clinical governance, meeting attendees will be required to register for the meeting in advance and are required to work within the NHS in the area of cancer genetics.

National Cancer Genetics MDT Objectives:

  1. Creation of a national multidisciplinary professional network and regular forum to discuss and advise on complex cancer genetics cases.

  2. Improve outcomes and consistency of care for patients by facilitating multidisciplinary discussion.

  3. Identify areas in which national guidelines are required or need updating.

  4. Improve training and education in clinical cancer genetics.

  5. Facilitate relevant publications in peer-reviewed journals based on cases discussed, best practice guidelines and the value of a national forum for clinicians and patients.
