My noble friend makes a very sound point. Harpal Kumar’s task force produced a report entitled Achieving World-Class CancerOutcomes. If anyone wants a little bit of holiday reading, it is well worth reading at least the three-page letter at the front of the report. He recommends in the report that if a GP has a 3% or greater suspicion of cancer, the person in question should be referred for further investigations.
