Sign | Management of testicular germ cell tumours

10th May 2011 by Louise Hudman

Most of this is not new for us, or is for secondary care. Worthwhile noting is:

  • 2 week wait refer if epididymo-orchitis/orchitis is suspected but is not resolving in 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Patients have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, because of chemo and radiotherapy, so ensure that they are given appropriate lifestyle advice. The exact risk may be up to about 2.5x background levels if treated with chemo and radiotherapy.
  • Patients are also at increased risk of non-germ cell tumours (2 to 3 times).

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
