Primary Data Sources
The CRANE database is a record of information about children born with cleft lip and palate in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The CRANE Database can be considered a continuation of the Craniofacial Anomalies Register (CARE) that since 1990 was maintained by the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain and Ireland (CFSGBI).
The CRANE database is funded by the National Health Service through the Specialist Service Commissioners, who have responsibility for the care of children born with cleft lip and palate. An independent body, the Cleft Development Board, which represents patient groups, clinicians and commissioners, has the overall responsibility for running the database. The information is held on a computer, located at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. Cleft teams enter data on to CRANE electronically via the web.
The database holds information such as:
