ABSTRACT
The article discusses the key issues for primary care that emerge during cancer survivorship phase and proposals in which pathways of follow-up care could be amended to improve outcomes for patients. It indicates the need to change the way follow-up care is delivered since cancer patients are a high-risk cohort for medical morbidity and their risk factors may also be risk factors for other diseases. It cites the need for primary care to prepare for changes in the delivery of follow-up care.
