Links with Service Users

The Registry has strong links with service users having patient representation on the Council and involves patients and their representatives in the development of reports and their launch.  The Privacy Advisory Committee for Northern Ireland which advises on patient confidentiality has commended the Registry on its work in this area.  The Registry works closely with the local cancer charities, DHSS, the Public Health Agency and Trusts which are represented on the Steering Group and Council.

A patient information leaflet has been developed and is available in all Trusts and on the Registry website since 2008.

The N. Ireland Cancer Registry is the official producer of cancer incidence and survival statistics in Northern Ireland.
