Introduction: Transformation of the South Wales NET service in late 2017 introduced new specialised staff, gastroenterology-led clinics and improved MDTs with a particular emphasis on educating referring specialties. This has led to improved overall patient experience, satisfaction and quality of life. NETs are recognised world-wide for their lengthy diagnosis times.

Introduction: The ENETS guidelines classify Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (GEP NETs) according to the histological assessment of tumour mitotic count or Ki67 labelling index (LI) on paraffin-embedded tissue, because proliferation rate has been shown to strongly correlate with prognosis. Since the guidelines were published, Ki67 has been established as the more reproducible measure, and further large case series have been reported.
