About Us

NWCIS was set up in April 2006 when the North Western and Merseyside and Cheshire Cancer registries were combined into a single organisation. NWCIS covers the areas of Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, South Cumbria, Merseyside and Cheshire.

Along with being a member of the United Kingdom Association of Cancer Registries (UKACR), each English cancer registry has taken the lead for one or more tumour sites. The lead registries support the National Cancer Intelligence Network Site Specific Clinical Reference Group (NCIN SSCRG) for that site and deal with data requests for the relevant tumours. NWCIS is the lead for Teenagers and Young Adults.

From 1st April 2013, NWCIS will be part of Public Health England
