HEALTH: Cancer survival could significan­tly improve if the NHS collected and used data more intelligen­tly, a think tank has suggested.

Reform said the health service could be collecting far more informatio­n on cancer patients, including survival, treatment, patient experience and medical history. It said this could lead to improvemen­ts in the prevention of cancer, earlier diagnosis and effectiven­ess of treatment. It said extra data should be collected.
