Data Collection 2017

The information on surgical outcomes was derived from data on patients diagnosed with oesophageal or stomach cancer between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2016 (three years of data).  This is a change from previous years where 2 years of data was used to analyse outcomes. The information was submitted by hospital staff to the Audit via a secure, web-based data collection system and, for most patients, the Audit received complete data on their disease and the variety of treatments given.
