NHS treated cancer patients receiving major surgical resections – March 2011

“This initial report on major surgical resections in England presents the percentage of NHS treated cancer patients who received a major resection as part of their treatment. The report contains results for thirteen cancer sites and covers patients diagnosed during 2004-2006 who were followed up to 2007. Percentages are presented by sex, age, deprivation quintile and cancer network, with funnel plots depicting both percentages and indirectly age-standardised ratios by cancer network. Cancer networks have been assigned by the residence of patients at time of diagnosis. These data provide a basis to instigate further exploration of major surgical resections for cancer patients and to encourage improved recording and sharing of data to allow further analyses to be produced.”

A post on the Cancer Research UK Science Update Blog also discusses this work.
