Cancer information on Norfolk GP surgery websites

Linking in with a piece of work carried out by other East of England Healthwatch, Healthwatch Norfolk (HWN) conducted a mini audit to look at what information is available for cancer patients on GP surgery websites.

Our study found it was difficult to find information on websites. Just 3 per cent has details about cancer or cancer support on the home page, and just 6 per cent had information anywhere on the site about local support groups.

It tended to be easier to find information without using the website Search function.

There was no information about cancer support groups actually on the GP Surgery website but there was a link to the Norfolk Community Directory which produced this information using its search function.
