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.

Cancer Incidence

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.

The report can be viewed at here and information on the underlying data.

Cancer Survival

The Office of National Statistics has released the index of cancer survival for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in England: Adults diagnosed 2002 to 2017 and followed up to 2018.  This includes one-year cancer survival for all cancers combined, for breast, colorectal, and lung cancer and for these three cancers combined.
