This is the 2016 Annual Report for the National Bowel Cancer Audit. The report is prepared by NHS Digital in partnership with the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPBGI) and the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS).
The results presented in this report are based upon patients diagnosed with bowel cancer between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2015.
Individual trust-level reports have been created again this year. They have been compiled by the National Bowel Cancer Audit to allow the review of process and outcome measures at the trust and network level.
