The ERICA Study

Electronic Risk Assessment for Cancer

Our practice is one of over 500 GP surgeries across England working with researchers at the University of Essex on a large research study.

The researchers are trying to find out if a new computer-based risk assessment tool can help identify cancer earlier.

Half of the GP surgeries will be given access to the risk assessment tool and half will not.

We are taking part in the study.

Patients may be contacted by us and invited to take part in the research to:

  • Explore your experience of care
  • Discuss your current health
  • Look at the NHS services you are using
