Cancer Outcomes and Services Data set

About this information standard

The Cancer Outcomes and Services Data set (COSD) is a compiled data set which provides the standard for secondary uses information required to support implementation and monitoring of Improving Outcomes: a Strategy for Cancer (IOSC).

Version 7.0 introduces some amendments and re-alignments to the current data set, a formalised pathology specific data set (as a subset) and a revision of the current schema specification in order to continue to meet the business objectives of the standard.

This information standard is published under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. An Information Standards Notice (see below) provides an overview of scope and implementation timescales, and the other listed documents provide further detail for those who have to implement the information standard.
