The National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA) is changing

NHS trusts should stop submitting NOGCA data to the Clinical Audit Platform (CAP) for patients diagnosed after 31 March 2022. NOGCA is changing from next year, to report using routine national data only.  

We apologise to any hospitals that have already submitted data for patients diagnosed since 31 March 2022, and would like to thank everyone for your support to date. 

We will provide further information about NOGCA‘s plans for reporting, and how hospitals can ensure that information about patients with OG cancer in the national datasets is complete and accurate.  

The 2022 Report for Public and Patients has been published and is available in the reports section of this website.

The report summarises key findings from the 2022 audit report, and is written for patients, family members and carers.

NOGCA’s 2022 Annual Report has been published and is available from the Reports section of the website.

The report focuses on the care received by patients diagnosed with oesophago-gastric cancer between April 2019 and March 2021 in England and Wales, and the outcomes of treatment. It also evaluates the care pathway followed by patients diagnosed with oesophageal high grade dysplasia in England.

Application of the National Data Opt-Out policy to NOGCA has been deferred.

This means that NHS Trusts in England do not need to apply the National Data Opt-Out policy when submitting data to NOGCA.

NOGCA is going to give patients the option of an audit-only opt-out.  Information about the audit-only opt-out will be shared with patients via an updated patient leaflet and a poster. Trusts will need to print out the patient information and share it with patients.  We will provide Trusts with links to the patient information when the documents are available.
