One in two people will develop cancer during their lifetime. A lot of health data about each and every one of us is collected, but this data is not always quick and easy for researchers to find, access and analyse. Our aim is to make high quality health data more accessible for cancer researchers and health professionals in the NHS, universities and the life sciences sector, to help them carry out research into new diagnostic tools and treatments to improve care and outcomes for people with cancer.
Data services are vital to provide health researchers and practitioners with quality data that can innovate health services and improve patient outcomes.
DATA-CAN is making high quality datasets available to cancer researchers via the Health Data Research Innovation Gateway.
