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 love getting an email to say 'a new GP locum has linked with your practice', especially when the offer of sessions is just what I’d been needing and it’s just dropped into my lap! It’s great to have everything in one place and be able to download documents so easily. LocumDeck makes the terms and conditions of each locum really clear, and I’ve built up a really good amount of offers from different GPs. It’s easy to keep track of invoices and pension forms, and it’s great that it’s free for practices to use too."
