Cancer diagnoses

Information relating to cancer diagnosis in Jersey is analysed by Public Health England through the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service on behalf of the Channel Islands. The latest report from Public Health England can be found here: 

Channel Islands Cancer Registration Report 2020 ( 

Cancer diagnosis data for the period 2018 to 2022 will be included in future iterations of this report. 

Providing data from the Jersey health systems would require data extraction, matching and analysis from the following systems:

  • Cancer Outcomes and Services dataset (COSD) from the cancer management MDT system 
  • Pathology (including information about staging and metastasis)
  • Patient Administration System (PAS)
  • Death certificates or notices 

Compilation of this data, without information from U.K. data systems related to Jersey domiciled residents, will not give a complete picture of cancer diagnosis in Jersey residents. Data is supplied through the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service in order to provide a complete data set of cancer diagnoses. 

As data would need to be extracted from various sources and manipulated to answer this request, aside from taking more than the prescribed 12.5 hour time cost limits, the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data in order to provide a response. Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied. 


The table below shows the total number of Echocardiograms (‘heart scans’) performed through Health and Community Services per annum from 2018 to 2022.
