Dr Imogen Staveley, Camden CCG Clinical Lead for Cancer, is taking part in the qFIT pilot study being run by UCLH Cancer Collaborative.

Imogen, a GP at the Prince of Wales Medical Centre, said "I'm really excited to be one of the GP practices taking part in the qFIT pilot study. Currently when patients come to see their GP with symptoms that could indicate colorectal cancer many will end up being referred for a colonoscopy to investigate further. We are hoping that the qFIT test will prove to be a simple, inexpensive alternative to a colonoscopy for lots of patients to rule out colorectal cancer".
