Under consideration PE2080: Implement the recommended screening guidelines for people with Li Fraumeni Syndrome

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to implement screening for people with, or at risk of, Li Fraumeni Syndrome (TP53 mutation), in line with the guidelines recommended by the UK Cancer Genetics Group.

Previous action taken

I have made a complaint to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

I have also recently contacted my local MSP and my MP for East Renfrewshire.

Background information

Li Fraumeni TP53 mutation is a genetic syndrome that predisposes a person to cancer, usually of an aggressive type.

The UK Cancer Genetics Group (UKCGG) have made recommendations for screening which have been implemented in parts of England, however they have not been implemented in Scotland. I am calling on the Scottish Government to implement screening for Li Fraumeni patients in line with the guidelines set out in the UKCGG paper in the Journal of Medical Genetics.
