UK intelligence networks

National Cancer Intelligence Network

One of the key aims of the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) is to enable use of cancer information to support audit and research programmes. The National Cancer Data Repository (NCDR) brings together data from English cancer registries, Hospital Episode Statistics and National Clinical Audit Data as well as data from the Celtic nations. There are also links with the data held in the Clinical Research Practice Datalink (CPRD).
