Completeness of cancer and death follow-up obtained through the National Health Service Central Register for England and Wales.
For the last 20 years the National Health Service Central Register (NHSCR) has been used as the principal source of follow-up for mortality, and often for cancer incidence, in many cohort and clinical follow-up studies in England and Wales.
Completeness of notification of childhood cancer registrations and deaths from the NHSCR was investigated by comparison between cancers and deaths notified to the Childhood Cancer Research Group (CCRG) from this source and notifications received directly from regional cancer registries and the national death registry.
