This digital data toolkit brings together data from the Institute for Health Economics (IHE)’ Comparator Report on Cancer in Europe, to enable comparisons of the cancer outcomes achieved in the UK with that of other European countries.

In addition to the data provided by the IHE, the ABPI undertook a series of interviews with key stakeholders from across the cancer policy landscape to gain their perspectives on the data as well as their priorities for the future of cancer care in the UK.  A summary of the key themes emerging from these interviews can be found in the ‘UK Stakeholder Perspectives’ page.
