The aim of the National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit is to examine the overall quality of care for oesophago-gastric cancer in the UK. In particular, it looks at patterns of treatment and what determines them; compliance with key process standards, such as the use of staging investigations and outcomes of surgery and other treatment, including peri-operative mortality, lymph node yields and resection margin status.
It is funded by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Program (HQIP) and is a collaboration between five organisations:
- British Society of Gastroenterology
- Royal College of Radiologists (RCR)
- Clinical Audit and Registries Management Service (CARMS) of NHS Digital
- Clinical Effectiveness Unit of the Royal College of Surgeons of England / London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (CEU)
