Introduction

This tool contains data on cancer services at GP, primary care network (PCN) and CCG level collated by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS). 

The profiles are for commissioners and health professionals to use when assessing the impact of cancer on their local population and making decisions about services. They include data on cancer incidence and screening, diagnostic services, Two Week Wait referrals, emergency presentations and admissions.

Profiles are generated for all practices in QOF 2018/19 with a list size of at least 1000 patients and for other practices if they had according to NHS digital in April 2019 a list size of at least 1000 patients and there is valid GP patient survey data for the practice. 

The Cancer Services profile was produced as part of the Cancer Research UK - Public Health England Partnership.

Note: An error was identified for indicators based on hospital episode statistics (HES) data which gave misleading results for areas within the South East region and East Sussex. Affected areas have been suppressed or flagged to be treated with caution. Full details can be found in the caveats section of the descriptive metadata for each affected indicator.
