Developing the Scottish Cancer Registry and Intelligence Service (SCRIS)

What difference will this make

The collaborative and innovative approach taken by IHDP to improving cancer intelligence in Scotland will have long term benefits for cancer patients and those involved in planning and delivering their care:

  • Policy makers will be better able to monitor progress against strategy commitments and identify areas for improvement.
  • Those delivering cancer services will be able to achieve better service planning, slicker audit, more informed performance management, and benchmarking, leading to continuous quality improvement.
  • Direct and more timely access to research and data analysis will ultimately achieve improvements in patient care.
