NOGCA newsletter: 28 January deadline, COP and more
September 2021   

January deadline for 2020-21 tumour records

Please submit all HGD and tumour records for patients diagnosed between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2020 by Friday 28 January 2022.

Data submitted after this deadline cannot be linked to HES and ONS data, meaning that they cannot be included in all analyses in the 2022 Annual Report and Clinical Outcomes Publication.

Clinical Outcomes Publication (COP)

The 2021 COP will not publish consultant-level outcomes. 

This decision has been made given the disruptions to cancer surgery provision due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

However, consultant-level outcomes will be provided to organisations to support local quality assurance.

The final COP reports will be sent to surgical centres in December 2021. 

2021 Annual Report

The 2021 Annual Report, covering 2018-2020 diagnoses, will be published on Thursday 9 December 2021. 

Quarterly reports

A quarterly report based on an extract taken on 19 July 2021 was sent to all NHS trust contacts in England at the start of September. 

The next quarterly report data submission deadline is Friday 29 October 2021.

If there is anything different you would like to see in the quarterly reports, email og.cancer@nhs.net
