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.
For further information about how your data is used, please see www.cruk.org/ncda
More information about cancer registration is available at www.ndrs.nhs.uk
If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or your nurse. This will not affect your care in any way.
More information is available at www.cruk.org/ncda , www.ndrs.nhs.uk or ask a member of staff.
