Pre-release access list: emergency presentations of cancer data


The quarterly emergency presentations of cancer data has been updated by Public Health England’s National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS).

Data estimates are for all malignant cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) and are at clinical commissioning group (CCG) level, with England as a whole for comparison.

This latest publication includes quarterly data for October 2019 to December 2019 (quarter 3 of financial year 2019 to 2020) and an update of the one-year rolling average.

The proportion of emergency presentations for cancer is an indicator of patient outcomes.
