National Cancer Diagnosis Audit

NCDA

This GP Practice is taking part in an important national project to improve how people are diagnosed with cancer. This project is called the National Cancer Diagnosis Audit (NCDA).

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, your GP practice may share, securely, certain information with the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Centre at Public Health England.

This information might include how many times you came in to see the GP with symptoms, what types of tests you had, and when you were referred.

Taking part in the NCDA shows that this GP practice is committed to diagnosing cancer as early as possible, to improving care for people with signs and symptoms that could be cancer and care for cancer patients.

The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.

If you do not want your information to be used, contact the National Cancer Registry at:

optout@phe.gov.uk

Or write to:

Director, National Cancer Registry, Public Health England, 6th Floor, Wellington House, 133-155 Waterloo Road, London SE1 8UG

This will not affect your care in any way.

More information is available at: www.cruk.org/ncda | www.ndrs.nhs.uk/

The NCDA is delivered in partnership with: Public Health England, Royal College of General Practitioners, Macmillan Cancer Support, Cancer Research UK.
