The production of this report has been made possible by the active co-operation of consultants, general practitioners, pathology laboratories, medical records staff, information specialists, medical secretaries, clinical coders and managers in the former Yorkshire Health Region. The Registry is indebted to all those who have submitted data and whose support has been given over many years. The statistics in this report have been derived from data collected in hospitals, hospices, screening units and other health care providers, both NHS and private. We hope the individuals and institutions will find the report useful.

We would also like to acknowledge the advice and support given to Registry staff by members of the Cancer Registry Advisory Group. In particular, we are grateful to Mr Richard Sainsbury, Dr Carl Gray, Mr Ian Rothwell, Professor Mark Baker, and Professor Charles Joslin who chaired the group until his retirement.

We are also grateful to the Directors of the UK Cancer Registries and to the Office for National Statistics for the provision of unpublished data.
