About

We are using data to help patients at front line of NHS cancer care.

The Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre and the Edinburgh Cancer Centre are working together to use data and information systems in new ways.

The Edinburgh Cancer Centre provides comprehensive cancer care for the South East Scotland Cancer Network, serving patients within the 4 regional Health Boards – NHS LothianNHS FifeNHS Dumfries and Galloway and NHS Borders.

The Edinburgh Cancer Information Modernisation Programme is enabling improved access to cancer patient data to support service planning, quality improvement and research to improve outcomes for patients.

The programme is delivering a world class resource for use in collaboration with national analytical partners, researchers and Scottish Government’s Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme in association with Health Data Research UK. Research is facilitated by close working with the NHS Lothian Research Safe Haven.
