Oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the UK, affecting around 16,000 people each year. The audit collects prospective data on all adult patients diagnosed in England and Wales with either invasive epithelial cancer of the oesophagus, gastro-oesophageal junction (GOJ) or stomach, or HGD of the oesophagus.
Future of the audit
NHS England and the Welsh Government agreed in March 2017 to fund a National Gastrointestinal Cancer (Oesophago-gastric and Bowel) Audit Programme from 2018 which will cover both the upper and lower gastro-intestinal tract. It is expected that this programme will incorporate some or all of the scope of the existing National Bowel and Oesophago-gastric Cancer audits. For further information about the timelines and details of how to apply for the National Gastrointestinal Cancer (Oesophago-gastric and Bowel) Audit Programme once the tender has been launched, please review HQIP’s Tenders and Procurement webpage.
