The Cancer Notification Portal enables notifications of cancer cases and clinical information to be provided to the Cancer Institute NSW in an electronic format.
Cancer is a notifiable disease under the Public Health Act 2010. Cancer notifications are received by the Cancer Institute NSW on behalf of the NSW Ministry of Health and compiled in the NSW Cancer Registry. Clinical information collected under agreements between the Institute and cancer services is also compiled in the Registry.
The information collected enables the monitoring of cancer incidence, mortality and survival. It informs initiatives to improve cancer health system performance and, ultimately, improve outcomes for people with cancer.
