Chris Carrigan

Chris founded the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN), which transferred into Public Health England (PHE) in April 2013. The NCIN is a partnership funded by a range of bodies, including the public sector and leading cancer charities, tasked with providing new insights and intelligence into cancer inequalities, diagnosis, care, outcomes and experience.

On a personal level, Chris has seen the best and the worst of cancer outcomes. He lost his younger brother six years ago after a delay in his diagnosis. In contrast, his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago, received rapid diagnosis, excellent treatment and care and is now fit and well.
