The project will pioneer the use of clinician-led reporting to track cancer patients and inform treatment pathways. It has been developed to ensure that high quality cancer care is being delivered across the country to safeguard patients.With the key objective being to identify and learn from every case of COVID-19 in cancer patients in the UK through comprehensive reporting.

The scheme will relay real-time daily updates back to individual cancer centres, providing valuable insights to inform key decision makers. Crucially, it will enable national monitoring of the impact of COVID-19 on cancer patients and cancer centres (Source: University of Leeds)
