Breakthrough study on early symptoms of ovarian cancer wins RCGP research paper of the year award
Commenting on this study, RCGP Chair, Professor Steve Field, said: "I’ve followed Dr Hamilton’s research very closely in this area in recent years and I’m thrilled that the College is presenting him with this award. This is a brilliant academic paper. It shows academic general practice research at its best.”
The influential study, which has since been used by the Department of Health and cancer charities to raise awareness of the condition, identified seven symptoms in total to help GPs and Practice Nurses with early diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
