Index of Cancer Survival for Clinical Commissioning Groups in England: Adults Diagnosed 1997-2012 and Followed up to 2013

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

Key Points:

The one-year cancer survival index for England increased steadily from 59.7% for adults diagnosed in 1997 to 69.3% in 2012.

Geographic inequalities in the one-year survival index are persistent: a clear North-South gradient existed in 1997, although this was less marked in 2012.

The pattern of a gradual increase in the one-year survival index with persistent geographic inequalities is similar for middle-aged (55 to 64 years) and elderly (75 to 99 years) patients.

In 2012, the England one-year survival index for all cancers remained markedly lower for elderly patients (57.2%) compared to middle-aged patients (76.7%).

Geographic inequalities in the one-year survival index in London are only slightly narrower than those observed for the whole of England.
