C the Signs: Co-founded by Dr Bhavagaya Bakshi, C the Signs is a multi-platform tool for all healthcare professionals to support early identification of patients at risk of cancer. Diagnosing cancer is extremely difficult. Unlike other conditions, there is no single symptom—nor a single test or investigation—that can alert clinicians to a potential cancer diagnosis, or test or investigation. Cancer is a collection of over 200 different diseases, each with their own signs, symptoms and risk factors, the earliest of which are often vague and non-specific and tend to overlap with other less sinister conditions. This can be especially challenging to identify at the first appointment in general practice. C the Signs uses advanced algorithms combined with optimisation and prioritisation systems to reflect the natural decision-making process of doctors, translating complex research and guidelines into a simple and intuitive journey for the user. C the Signs covers the entire spectrum of cancer, cross-referencing multiple diagnostic pathways, to support clinicians in identifying what cancer or cancers a patient is at risk for, as well as the most appropriate next step for the patient, be it a test, investigation or urgent referral. It is fast enough to be used during the consultation to speed up decision-making, ensuring at risk patients are identified and can access the right service at the right time for their clinical needs.
