We also promised you a link to the Department of Health's report An Intelligence Framework for Cancer - published 13th December 2011: "High quality care is critical to improving cancer outcomes. While this country has many of the elements required to collect, analyse and publish information; there are also deficiencies in cancer intelligence. This document sets out plans to tackle these deficiencies and sets out aspirations."
The document was produced by the NCIN, following a commitment made by the Department of Health to the Public Accounts Committee in May 2011.
In case you are not aware: "The NCIN is a UK-wide initiative working to drive improvements in standards of cancer care and clinical outcomes by improving and using the information collected about cancer patients for analysis, publication and research."
