Protocols and governance

We're committed to supporting clinicians during Covid-19 and beyond, ensuring patients continue to receive the best possible care, safely and without delay.

Governance

At GenesisCare, through regulation and governance, we deliver the latest evidence- based treatments in a safe and high-quality environment.

Our Clinical Governance Committee sets safe and effective treatment protocols, reviews pathways, manages risk and works with the CQC. All consultant practising privileges are reviewed and continuously validated by our Medical Advisory Committee. Cases outside standard protocol are referred to our Clinical Advisory Team to peer review and recommend the best treatment plan.

Our Clinical Leaders Forum consists of leading practitioners in all fields of oncology working with GenesisCare to spearhead best practice and innovations, and expand our referral network.

Our Clinical Reference Groups specialising in breast, prostate, SABR and haematology oversee the continuous process of clinical evaluation, using peer-group collaboration and data-driven insights to design and implement standardised treatment protocols across our centres.

eMDT

Exceptional patient care is a collaboration of clinical and medical oncologists, surgeons, radiographers, radiologists, medical physicists, clinical nurse specialists, therapists and wellbeing practitioners, as well as primary care specialists and our acute admissions partner hospitals. We are providing an eMDT platform to facilitate easy and secure communication and data access between these healthcare teams and experts across the GenesisCare global organisation.

eMDT platform

We appreciate that our surgical and oncology teams will face difficult decisions in the coming days and weeks. We have accelerated the roll-out of our eMDT platform to ensure all best practice protocols are maintained. This system facilitates clinician peer review and combines videoconferencing and data technology to enable remote collaboration in a secure environment that tracks the patient journey.

The eMDT platform provides real time, decision making solutions using state-of-the-art video and data collaboration technology. This enhances the clinical processes without the technology getting in the way, allowing patient care to flow seamlessly. The unique decision-tracking and teleconferencing software is GDPR compliant and protects the flow of sensitive medical record data whilst maintaining the high standards of confidentiality.

Contact your local Referrer Engagement Manager (REM) who will walk you through the process. Our Medical Advisory Team meets monthly or as necessary to approve practising privileges.

How to refer

We are continuing to treat without delay and are accepting referrals for all services, including diagnostics, medical oncology and radiotherapy.

For patients starting or continuing cancer treatment, each case will be reviewed individually by an eMDT which can also involve the referring clinician.
