The data are used at both a local and national level by health authorities and the Department of Health to help plan and improve resources for treating and caring for people who have cancer and their carers.
At a national level, the data are used for research into the causes of cancer and to monitor the effectiveness of screening programmes. Also, at a national level, the data are used to help monitor whether cancer treatments are improving outcomes for patients, including monitoring whether or not people with cancer are surviving longer. Additionally, the data are used by many national cancer research organisations, which are doing important work to develop improved tests, treatments and cures for a wide variety of cancers.
