General Practice Profiles

The General Practice (GP) profiles bring together a range of process and outcomes information relevant to cancer in primary care. They provide readily available and comparative information for benchmarking and reviewing variation at a general practice level. GP profiles published before 2012 are mapped to Primary Care Trust (PCT) only. GP Profiles are available via the CCT (public and NHS professional view).

GP Profile Example

What is included in the profiles?

The data in the profiles are updated annually based on the latest available information. Data relating to the individual indicators come from different data sources and different time periods. There are 24 indicators shown on each profile, grouped into 4 ‘domains’ containing indicators that are similar in type.

These domains are:

  • Demographics
  • Cancer Screening
  • Cancer Waiting Times
  • Presentation & Diagnostics

How can I access these profiles?

The profiles are available via the Cancer Commissioning Toolkit (CCT). The profiles are available to view in both the public and the registered members versions of the CCT. The public version of the profiles has had some information removed to protect patient confidentiality. Further help and guidance is available within the CCT.


We welcome comments and suggestions as to how to make future versions and iterations more relevant and useful for those who use them. Please email profiles at ncin dot link   with your feedback or questions.
