This symposium will highlight the key issues facing patients and their families following the end of initial treatment, and will consider different models for providing follow-up care.  In particular, speakers will focus on the role of primary care in optimising survivorship care, and the interface between primary and secondary care. 

The session will be relevant for surgeons, oncologists, nurses, GPs, researchers, patients and carers.
