The National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN), was set up in 2008[1] to drive improvements in care standards and clinical outcomes.[2] NCIN is now part of Public Health England, following the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

About NCIN[edit]

NCIN coordinates the collection, analysis and publication of comparative national information on diagnosis, treatment and outcomes for many types of cancers, in a way which is useful to patients, commissioners and service providers and other interested parties.

Sitting within Public Health England (PHE), the NCIN is a UK organisation that attempts to work closely with cancer services in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland but the majority of the reports are at an England level only.

It brings together information from national NHS cancer organisations, cancer registries, health service researchers and a range of other interested parties (including the Office for National Statistics; National Clinical Audit Support Programme; and the Health and Social Care Information Centre).

To ensure that data and analysis produced by NCIN is used to improve clinical care, NCIN set up 12 site specific clinical reference groups (SSCRGs).These groups ensure that the interpretation of NCIN is relevant to clinicians and can be used by the clinical community to improve outcomes.
