Launch of Pancreatic Cancer Audit and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Audit
Thursday 18th October 2012

The figures have been revealed today as part of an event at Queen’s University Belfast organised by the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry and attended by Dr Michael McBride, Professor Sir Peter Gregson, Dr Anna Gavin and Edwin Poots, MLA, Minister for Department of Health, Social Services & Public Safety.

The audit results follow last week’s recognition for Queen’s at Buckingham Palace, when the University was awarded a Diamond Jubilee Queen’s Anniversary Prize for its leadership of the Northern Ireland Comprehensive Cancer Services programme. The programme has led to improved cancer survival rates in Northern Ireland and is a collaboration led by Queen’s in partnership with the Department of Health and the five Northern Ireland Health Trusts with support from the medical research industry.

Mr Poots said that his Department was proud of the achievements of the University and their health service partner and he was confident that leadership in research is informing improvements in treatment, and to leading clinicians and other health professionals choosing to work in Northern Ireland. The Pancreatic cancer and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Audit reports are available here.
