About the Hub

The Head and Neck Cancer Hub provides data and intelligence on head and neck cancers in England. It is aimed at a wide range of professionals working in the field, including NHS providers, commissioners, Cancer Networks, charities and clinicians. It also provides information and links for patients and the general public who wish to understand more about head and neck cancers, including information about incidence and mortality, and past and current trends. It has also been specifically designed to support the work of the Head & Neck Cancers Clinical Reference Group.

There are several cancers which are grouped together as the head and neck cancers:

  • Oral cavity
  • Salivary glands
  • Oropharynx
  • Nasopharynx
  • Hypopharynx
  • Larynx
  • Palate
  • Thyroid gland

A number of charities provide information on head and neck cancers. For more information, see our Information for patients and carers page.

The Head and Neck Cancer Hub is maintained by the Knowledge and Intelligence Team - South East (formerly the Oxford Cancer Intelligence Unit). The team leads on the analysis of head and neck cancer data on behalf of the United Kingdom Association of Cancer Registries (UKACR).
