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 April 2023, NHS Digital published the index of cancer survival for sub-Integrated Care Boards (sub-ICBs) , 2005 to 2020. This includes one-year cancer survival for all cancers combined, for female breast, colorectal, and lung cancer.

Interactive data dashboard

An interactive dashboard is available containing one-year survival for sub-ICBs and one-year, five-year and 10-year survival data at ICB 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.
