Patient Information Leaflet

The N. Ireland Cancer Registry 'About Cancer Registration A leaflet for Patients' provides the public with information on Cancer Registration.

The Northern Ireland Cancer Registry has produced a poster about "Cancer Registration" which can be downloaded here

The information contained in Common Questions about the Cancer Registration System is based on issues raised by patients and carers during the formal testing and piloting of the patient information leaflet (NHS Version) from which the leaflet for Northern Ireland was developed.  They are intended to be useful to patients who, having read the leaflet would like more information about cancer registration.  They are also intended to provide additional background information for health professionals, as an aid to dealing with issues relating to cancer registration raised by patients.
