The experience of setting up cancer family history clinics in secondary care raised challenges but overall enabled the provision of accurate risk and management advice to individuals and families, improved the appropriateness of referrals and reduced demand on overstretched symptomatic and screening services. This chapter draws on the experience of two nurse-led FH clinics in the south east of England. The rationale for establishing the clinics, the way the services were delivered and the benefits, challenges and lessons learned are discussed.
