Cancer data contain data provided by Public Health England (PHE) via the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS). Linked NCRAS CPRD datasets include the Systemic Anti-Cancer Treatment (SACT) dataset covering chemotherapy treatment for all solid tumour and haematological malignancies, including those in clinical trials. Information is included about programme and regime of treatment, and the outcome for each treatment. NCRAS data are subject to additional data governance requirements and any researcher proposing to use these data should discuss their NCRAS requirements with CPRD’s Observational Research team prior to protocol submission.
Requests for NCRAS Cancer Registration data access are subject to prior protocol approval. Further information is available at https://www.cprd.com/linked-data.
Coverage is for patients with tumours recorded in the cancer registration data from January 2014 to December 2018.
Number of CPRD patients matched to a single cancer identifier = 901,965
