Why do we need your information?

Improvements in cancer care have been made since the audit began but it is important that this progress continues. For example, survival rates after surgery have improved year on year.

Audits are most effective when information from as many patients as possible is collected. So every patient is valuable to the audit.

The more patients we have information about, the more accurate our results are likely to be.

Only information from your hospital notes is used in the audit. The hospital enters your treatment information and NHS number onto a secure computer database at NHS Digital.
