A Treatment Summary is a document which encapsulates all of the treatments an individual with a cancer diagnosis has gone through. The document is produced by a Key Worker following treatment for cancer. It includes details of the treatment received, any potential effects of treatment, and signs and symptoms of recurrence.
It aims to inform General Practitioners and other primary care professionals of any actions they need to take and who to contact with any questions or concerns. It supports the discussion a patient can have with their GP as part of their Cancer Care Review.
