From April 2013 NHS England has had oversight of the Cancer Drugs Fund and the collection of information on the Fund is matter for NHS England.

NHS England publishes quarterly information on the number of applications automatically approved under the Cancer Drugs Fund cohort policies list. It also publishes information on the number of individual Cancer Drugs Fund applications, including those refused by the Cancer Drugs Fund panel. This information is available at:
