Cancer Incidence and Survival
The cancer intelligence team use nationally collected data to better understand how cancer affects the population of London, in particular we have used incidence and mortality data to support the wider efforts of TCST.
Recent work with the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service led to a new view of cancer incidence, and how it varies by ethnicity across London. The project assessed the estimated variation in cancer incidence by ethnicity using population based registration data. Understanding cancer inequalities at local level provides regional organisations with the practical insight necessary for developing tailored services to improve cancer prevention, early diagnosis, treatment, and continuing care.
NHS Digital has released the index of cancer survival for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in England: Adults diagnosed 2004 to 2019 and followed up to 2020. This includes one-year cancer survival for all cancers combined, for breast, colorectal, and lung cancer and for these three cancers combined.
