National Bowel Cancer Audit Annual Report 2019
The 2019 Annual Report is the tenth report to date and includes data on over 30,000 patients diagnosed with bowel cancer between 01 April 2017 and 31 March 2018.
For the first time, new indicators of return to theatre and robotic surgery are reported and the measure of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer is reported at trust/hospital level in England. The report discusses several key findings for care pathways, surgical care, survival, rectal cancer and National Cancer Registry data.
15.01.2020: Version 2 – We have re-issued the 2019 NBoCA Annual report (published on 09/01/2020) to correct the labelling on the Figure 3.3 legend (p18) from ‘mortality rate’ to ‘resection rate’ for both England and Wales. We regret the original report contained this error and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. The report conclusions and recommendations are unchanged.
