Personalised Stratified Follow-Up (PSFU)

The implementation of PSFU pathways provides better care and experience for patients and see a reduction in the amount of timeĀ  professionals spend seeing patients to allow them more time to focus of other parts of cancer pathways.

Having PSFU pathways means that when a person completes their primary treatment, they will be offered:

  • information about signs and symptoms to look out for which could suggest their cancer has recurred;
  • rapid re-access to their cancer team, including telephone advice and support
  • regular surveillance scans or tests (depending on cancer type), with quicker and easier access to results so that any anxiety is kept to a minimum; and
  • personalised care and support planning and support for self-management, to help them to improve their health and wellbeing in the long-term.
