Cancer Information Tools

Tools requiring registration


The CancerStats information and reporting portal will be the repository for all feedback on datasets which are managed or supported by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS). 

This currently includes the COSD Reporting portal, incidence and mortality along with other metrics. (Existing log in details can be used) 


This is only accessible on the N3 (NHS)  network.

The data on Cancerstats are generated using a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) run using Oracle SQL on the Cancer Analysis system (CAS). The SOP is used in many other routine outputs and can be accessed through the website.

Open access tools

These tools provide a range of knowledge and information for public users with a particular interest in cancer or cancer services. They are open access (no password required) and each tool provides instructions on its use and details of the data included.


CancerData has routine incidence and mortality data, as well as hosting the National Cancer Taskforce Dashboard which includes a number of metrics.

Cancer Services data - Fingertips

The PHE fingertips tool hosts the Cancer Services data, which reports GP and CCG data.

Health Profiles

This is Department of Health's programme to improve availability and accessibility to heath and health-related information in England. They give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. Health Profiles are produced and updated annually.

Gynaecological cancer profiles

The gynaecological cancer profiles offer a simplified funnel plot view of incidence, mortality and survival data, for the different gynaecological cancers (where available), at Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Health and Wellbeing Board area.

Prevalence e-Atlas

The Prevalence e-Atlas is an interactive tool which uses maps, charts and data tables to display cancer prevalence data by cancer network for the UK. The data displayed are those published in the NCIN report One, Five and Ten-year Cancer Prevalence.

Cancer Mortality Profiles

The mortality profiles are interactive spreadsheets showing trends in cancer mortality rates in England for under 75 year olds by different levels of geography. This tool has been developed to support the monitoring, commissioning and planning of local cancer services. The mortality profiles will be reviewed during 2015.
