Introduction

This tool contains data on cancer services at GP and CCG level collated by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS). It replaces the GP Cancer Profiles that were previously contained within the Cancer Commissioning Toolkit. 

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 2017/18 with a list size of at least 1000 patients and for other practices if they had according to NHS digital in April 2018 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.
