National Prostate Cancer Audit: Annual report 2017
Published: 21 Nov 2017
This fourth Annual Report from the National Prostate Cancer Audit (NPCA) presents current data regarding prostate cancer care in England and Wales for men diagnosed between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2016. For the first time, we report on the performance of NHS Providers across the patient pathway, from diagnosis through to the outcomes of treatment.
Using previously developed performance indicators, we describe the variation in disease presentation. In England and Wales, the proportion of men diagnosed with metastatic disease at presentation has stabilised compared with previous years. However, there is some variation between providers and further work is required to understand the potential causes of late presentation.
