Cancer registration – Why it matters and what you need to know
When a person is diagnosed with cancer in the UK information about them is automatically included in their national cancer registry. Information about their disease and the treatment they are receiving helps to:
- Improve the quality of care
- Plan cancer services
- Track cancer rates and establish survival statistics.
You can download a leaflet about the the National Cancer Registry, which is part of Public Health England, here.
