Cancer Information Tools

Tools requiring registration

Cancer Commissioning Toolkit

The Cancer Commissioning Toolkit (CCT) is a one stop shop that supports NHS Commissioners and Providers with cancer intelligence.  The data covers the patient pathway and is used to identify patterns of care which can contribute to saving lives, give commissioners options regarding service delivery and shares information to support the patient experience. The  CCT is available for public (potentially identifiable data restricted in the public version) and NHS registered users.


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

This currently includes the COSD Reporting portal and CASCADE. (Existing log in details can be used) 

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

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.
