Hi

Your request has been passed on to me to respond to directly.

Cancer registration data becomes provisionally available around 6 months
after the fact.  This means that November 2019 is the most recent cancer
registration data currently available.  I have attached a spreadsheet
which shows the number of cancer registrations recorded by week from 1
January 2015 to 27 November 2019.

I would recommend some caution when using this data. It is provisional and
there will be some cancer registrations in 2019 that have not yet been
reported.  We currently consider 2017 data to be "complete".

I hope this helps.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Cheers
