A measure of the number of adults diagnosed with breast, lung or colorectal cancer in a year who are still alive five years after diagnosis.
ONS still publish survival percentages for individual types of cancers. These can be found via the resource links below.
A time series for five-year survival figures for breast, lung and colorectal cancer individually (previous NHS Outcomes Framework indicators 1.4.ii, 1.4.iv and 1.4.vi) is still published and can be found under the link 'Indicator data - previous methodology (.xls)' below.
This indicator attempts to capture the success of the NHS in preventing people from dying once they have been diagnosed with breast, lung or colorectal cancer.
There will be no further updates for this indicator.
