National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit

March 2019
 
2017-18 final submission in May
The final submission deadline for patients diagnosed between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018 is expected to be in early May.

We will be able to confirm the date as soon as we get the linked HES and ONS data.

All treatment and pathology data should be completed by this date.  Tumour records can also be updated.

New tumour records submitted after November 2018 will not be included in this year’s annual report.  However, every NOGCA annual report includes two years of data so it is still worth adding them for inclusion next year.
 
NOGCA Patient Report 2018 published

The audit’s second patient report was published last month.

The report is written for patients, family members and carers. It highlights key findings from the 2018 audit and provides information about patient care pathways.

The
Oesophageal Patient Association is promoting the report on their website.

We encourage you to share the report with your local patient groups, and welcome any feedback:
