Northern Ireland Cancer Registry

N. Ireland Cancer Registry

The Registry

The N. Ireland Cancer Registry (NICR) is located in the Centre for Public Health, Queen's University Belfast and is funded by the Public Health Agency for Northern Ireland. The Department of Health established the N. Ireland Cancer Registry in 1994 and continues to appreciate and support via the PHA, the registry which produces the annual Official Statistics on cancer incidence, prevalence and survival in Northern Ireland and provides evidence to help inform decision making about cancer services.

We collect patient information on their disease and the services they receive. This work uses data provided by patients and collected by the health service as part of their care and support

Protection of patient information is a priority within the Registry and strict confidentiality rules are applied to prevent identification of individual patient details.

To find out more about what we do and how we work you may wish to open our patient information leaflet (PDF),  cancer information poster and video (see below). 

The following video gives further information on the role and work of the Cancer Registry.  Please do have a look at it.

If you have any queries about any of the information provided in the video, you can contact the NICR by email or tel: 028 9097 6028
