National Lung Cancer Audit (NCLA) annual report 2015

Reports | Published: 02 Dec 2015

The 11th annual report of the National Lung Cancer Audit (NLCA), published by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), reveals that despite significant progress in lung cancer care during the first 5 years of the audit, very little has changed since then.

Surgery offers the best chance of a cure for lung cancer patients. However, the audit demonstrates that since 2010, the proportion of lung cancer patients treated with surgery has not improved from 15%. Furthermore, this can vary across the country from 10 to 24% and this difference does not appear to be due to the patients’ background, age or stage of lung cancer.
