National Cancer Registry Ireland

Health Care

About us

The National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI) is a publicly appointed body established by the Minister for Health in 1991, to collect and classify information on all cancer cases which occur in Ireland. Cancer registration in the Republic of Ireland by the NCRI is population-based. The NCRI is funded by the Department of Health.

The information the NCRI collects is used in research into the causes of cancer, in education and information campaigns, and in the planning of the national cancer strategy to deliver the best cancer care to the whole population.

The NCRI regularly publishes reports on cancer incidence and survival and, more periodically, on prevalence and projections and has developed a diverse portfolio of research projects, many of which involve external collaboration.

NCRI’s functions are as follows:

• To identify, collect, classify, record, store and analyse information relating to the incidence and prevalence of cancer and related tumours in Ireland;

• To collect, classify, record and store information in relation to each newly diagnosed individual cancer patient and in relation to each tumour which occurs;

• To promote and facilitate the use of the data thus collected in approved research and in the planning and management of services;

• To publish an annual report based on the activities of the Registry;

• To furnish advice, information and assistance in relation to any aspect of such service to the Minister.
