"The pilot NIHR Health Research Support Service (HRSS) has reached a significant point in the development of the service by providing its first linked, anonymised dataset for a research study at Kings College London. The study is investigating how mental disorder in patients impacts upon the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to understand if there is any delay in cancer diagnosis and the affect it can have on a patient’s survival."
