The National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) Intelligence Network (NCIN), within Public Health England, has assisted the cancer registration process for the Channel Islands since January 1996.

The below link contains the most recent report from this service to incorporate data for Jersey and Guernsey and is an update using local 2012 to 2016 data for cancer incidence (new cases) and mortality.

Channel Islands Cancer Registration Report 2020 (

Breast cancer data from 2017 onwards will be included in the next iteration of this report and is currently being processed and sent to NHS Digital for analysis. The report will be published in 2022 but at present it is not possible to provide an exact date.

To answer the request, the data would need to be extracted from various sources and manipulated, aside from taking more than the prescribed 12.5 hours to do that work, the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data to provide a response. Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has therefore been applied.

Article applied

Article 16 - A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
