National Lung Cancer Audit annual report (for the audit period 2018)

Reports | Published: 13 Aug 2020

The National Lung Cancer Audit (NLCA) annual report uses data provided by Public Health England (PHE), the Welsh Cancer Network, and lung cancer teams in Jersey and Guernsey to provide a summary of key findings, national averages and geographical variance across an agreed list of lung cancer service performance indicators and patient outcomes.

The audit makes 13 specific recommendations around quality improvement for the attention of healthcare executives, multidisciplinary teams and commissioners of lung cancer services, highlighting deviation from National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and other nationally recognised standards of care. Additionally, this year, the NLCA team have produced a quality improvement toolkit to support organisations seeking quality improvement, including those notified as being potential negative outliers.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring/summer 2020, the outlier policy for this report was amended in line with NHS-wide changes to reduce burden on frontline clinical teams. The outlier process has now been completed and outlier information has been added to version 2 of the report. A change log is provided which outlines all the revisions made to version 2.
