About Local Cancer Intelligence and understanding Scotland's cancer population

People living with cancer have different needs, which are changing and becoming more complex. We know we have an ageing population, more people being diagnosed with cancer, and improved survival rates, which all mean the situation in Scotland is changing.

Local Cancer Intelligence helps you understand the changing cancer population within specific geographical areas of Scotland. We hope it will help you understand the cancer experiences in your local area and allow you to make informed decisions.

We have shown the changing cancer picture by giving you headline information on numbers, needs and experiences. This includes:

  • prevalence
  • incidence
  • mortality
  • patient experience.
