Primary Care Society for Gastroenterology Podcast Episode on Neuroendocrine Cancer 

Mar 12, 2024

As part of our ‘Spotlight on Neuroendocrine Cancer’ campaign, we aim to raise awareness of neuroendocrine cancer among healthcare professionals. We are delighted that this month the Primary Care Society of Gastroenterology has featured neuroendocrine cancer on their Ingest podcast.

The Ingest podcast is run by GP Charlie Andrews who uses the podcast to explore a range of gastroenterology topics from a GPs perspective. In this month’s episode, he interviewed Prof. Mark Pritchard, consultant gastroenterologist and chair of the UK & Ireland Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (UKINETS).

They discussed why it’s important for GPs to know about neuroendocrine cancer, the ways it can be recognised but also some of the challenges. Prof Pritchard provides lots of practical advice about when to suspect it, the fact that signs and symptoms can be vague and mimic other more common conditions such as IBS, and what GPs can do if they suspect neuroendocrine cancer.  

This provided a wonderful opportunity to highlight neuroendocrine cancer and raise awareness among GPs with the aim of supporting GPs to be able to recognise potential neuroendocrine cancer patients earlier and so enable those patients to be diagnosed faster and more accurately. 

Please help us and share this with your GP!
