UCLH is carrying out the SUMMIT study to detect lung cancer early using low-dose CT (LDCT) screening of at-risk individuals and to support development of a new blood test for early detection of multiple cancer types. Interested practices will need to sign up for the study, register your interest here.
The SUMMIT Study, beginning in spring 2019, has two aims: to detect lung cancer early using the proven method of low-dose CT (LDCT) screening of at-risk individuals; and to support development of a new blood test for early detection of multiple cancer types, including lung cancer. In addition, the study will provide evidence to inform a potential future national lung cancer screening programme. The study aims to recruit approximately 50,000 people aged 50-77 from north and east London.
How can my practice get involved?
UCLH and UCL are working closely with NOCLOR to engage GP practices in The SUMMIT Study. NOCLOR recently contacted practices in Camden with further information about the study and how to get involved.
Practices can register their interest to participate directly with NOCLOR. Click here for further information about taking part as a practice. A payment of £250 will be provided for participation. The study would not disrupt your normal surgery routine.
