Head and Neck Cancers

This page provides details of NCIN's work on head and neck cancers and of the Head and Neck Cancer Site Specific Clinical Reference Group (SSCRG).

The head and neck site specific clinical reference group

This group covers cancers of the head and neck, including the larynx, oral cavity, pharynx and major salivary glands.

The Chair of the Head and Neck SSCRG is Mr Richard Wight, ENT consultant at The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, and National Clinical Lead for Head and Neck cancers. 

The Public Health England Knowldege & Intelligence team (South East) support the SSCRG's analytical work programme and lead on requests for data on head and neck cancers.

The Head and Neck Cancer Hub

The Head and Neck Cancer Hub is new to the NCIN website!

The aim is to improve the manageability, accessibility and visibility of the Hub content. It is also a natural move in preparation for transition to Public Health England, which supports greater alignment and integration of public health intelligence resources on the web.
