Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please kindly provide the number of Lymphoma cases diagnosed in Jersey over the past five years. For the years 2019 and 2020, please provide a breakdown by month.
The table below shows the number of lymphoma cases reported as a result of submitted histology tissue/ FNA fluid. Duplicate entries for the same patient have been removed.
Please note: These figures DO NOT contain the number of cases of lymphoma diagnosed from bone marrow trephines. This has not been possible as they are not SNOMED (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine) coded.

Due to the small numbers involved it is not possible provide a further breakdown as this could potentially lead to disclosure of personal information. Article 25 (Personal information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 is therefore applied.
Article 25 Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
(3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
