Cancer Incidence and Survival

The TCST intelligence team uses nationally collected data to better understand how cancer affects the population of London. In particular, we use incidence and mortality data to support the wider programme of work across TCST.

Cancer Incidence

Recent work with the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service has 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 a local level provides regional organisations with the practical insight necessary to develop tailored services to improve cancer prevention, early diagnosis, treatment, and continuing care.

Cancer Survival

In March 2022, NHS Digital published the index of cancer survival for Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) in England for adults diagnosed between 2004 and 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.

Interactive data dashboard

An interactive dashboard is available containing one year survival data for London and West Essex as well as one-year, five-year and 10-year survival data at sustainability and transformation partnership and cancer alliance level for the London region.

The dashboard is best viewed in full screen mode using the latest version of your web browser.
