2017-18 final deadline Friday 24 May for Annual Report 
All amendments to 2017-18 data for inclusion in the 2019 Annual Report and Clinical Outcomes Publication must be made by Friday 24 May.
 
NOGCA spring dataset changes

We have made a number of changes to the dataset to improve the ability of the audit to describe important aspects of care as well as make data collection easier.  

Key changes include: 
  • An HGD and a tumour record can be submitted for the same patient
  • 11 HGD data items have been removed and 5 non-mandatory items added
  • Nutritional data items have been added to the tumour and surgery records
  • Post-neoadjuvant/Pre-operative TNM has been added to the surgery record
  • The ERAS data items in the surgery record have been made mandatory
  • Immunotherapy has been added as modality in the oncology record
The proforma on our website has been updated 

The
2019-20 dataset is now available on the audit website  The changes will go live in the Clinical Audit Platform (CAP) after the final submission of 2017-18 data. 

Based on the feedback we received in our 2017 User Survey, we hope that the amendments to the HGD record will make submission easier for trusts.
