Abstract BackgroundApproximately half of those diagnosed with cancer today will live for at least 10 years and will require healthcare support. People diagnosed with multiple tumours may be more likely to be on complex management and end of life pathways. This study examines geographical and demographic variation for people in London diagnosed with multiple primary tumours.MethodData on people living in London diagnosed with cancer in 1995-2015, still alive on 31/12/15, was extracted from Public Health England's cancer registration system. Proportion of the prevalent population with multiple primary tumours was compared to those with only one tumour. For patients with more than two tumours, details of their first and last tumour were used. Results are presented stratified by geography, sex, socio-economic deprivation, age, and years between diagnoses. Tumour site was also examined, exploring differences and association of tumour sites between first and subsequent diagnoses.ResultsThe workbook of results and analysis for both London and England is anticipated to be finalised prior to the conference. Preliminary findings show approximately 8% of people living with cancer in London have been diagnosed with multiple primary tumours with similar results for England. Variation anticipated between age, tumour type, and CCG.ConclusionThis work provides valuable new intelligence in understanding the needs of patients who with complex management pathways. This knowledge provides support for prioritising cancer as a long term condition and provides stakeholders with data on the requirements of patients living with cancer in London.
