The National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA) evaluates the quality of hospital care for patients with oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer in England and Wales. It provides information that helps NHS cancer services to compare their performance and to identify areas of care that could be improved. Since 2012, the audit has also included patients with high-grade dysplasia (HGD) of the oesophagus, which is a condition that increases a person’s risk of developing cancer.
This patient report is divided into two main parts: the first provides information about oesophago-gastric cancer, and the second is about high-grade dysplasia.
This patient report is written for patients, family members and carers to highlight key findings from the 2018 annual report and provide information on patient care pathways. The 2018 Oesophago-Gastric Annual Report can be read alongside this patient report for further detail and findings.
