The National Cancer Intelligence Network
The NCIN is a UK-wide initiative, working to drive improvements in standards of cancer care and clinical outcomes by improving and using the information collected about cancer patients for analysis, publication and research. Find out more about NCIN.
The NCIN prepares a wide range of reports and information, all of which are available to download.
You can browse for particular types of publication, see details of our work on particular types of cancer, or search the website for specific information.
In January 2013, the COSD replaced the previous National Cancer Dataset as the new national standard for reporting cancer in the NHS in England.
The COSD Dataset, User Guide, FAQs as well as a number of other supplementary documentation are available via the COSD designated webpages. Also, why not subscribe to our bi-monthly COSD Newsletter (COSD News) to keep abreast of all the latest COSD related information, including details of the proposed changes to the COSD for implementation from April 2014.
