The PHE National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) holds national data relating to patients’ cancer registrations in Encore. We now have access to radiotherapy (RTDS) and chemotherapy (SACT) datasets, both of which can tell us more about each patient’s treatment pathway. We are at the early stages of understanding these new datasets. Treatment information can also be found in Encore as well as in a number of other data sources, including HES . Thus we have triangulated the treatment data sources and are now entering the clinical and analytical interpretation phase of our Glioblastoma project – we will present our findings on the advantages of such data linkage, in addition to the challenges.
