Cancer Research UK would like to thank the following people for their kind help and expert advice: Dr Alex Smith and Professor Eve Roman, Haematological Malignancy Research Network (HMRN, funded by Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research); Dr Hamish Ross, National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) haematology Site-Specific Clinical Reference Group (which is hosted by Public Health England); Dr Steven Oliver, Knowledge and Intelligence Team (Northern & Yorkshire) on behalf of the NCIN; Dr Russell Patmore, Queens Centre for Oncology and Haematology, Castle Hill Hospital; and Dr Debra Howell, HMRN.

We would also like to acknowledge the essential work of the National Cancer Registration Service (part of Public Health England) and the Office for National Statistics in England, and the cancer registries in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Population-based cancer data has been collected in most regions of the UK since the early 1960s, and without this cancer registration system there would be no incidence or survival statistics.
