There is evidence that cancer patients in general practices with higher urgent referral rates for suspected cancer have better survival. Similarly, patients with upper GI cancers in practices with higher endoscopy use are more likely to receive treatment with curative intent. Consequently there is interest in understanding organisational predictors of use of endoscopies and urgent referrals. Evidence will be presented about how patient experience, quality and outcomes framework scores and practice team composition and population characteristics predict diagnostic evaluation activity in general practices.
