Report generation dates

Timetable to submit March 2018 & Q4 2017/18 data for submissions to the Open Exeter platform by 2 May 2018

The Cancer Waiting Times Database will be shut down at 17:00 hours on the Upload Deadline dates below. This is to allow the reports to be generated overnight. The system will become available at 09:00 hours the following morning, at which point the newly generated reports will be available.

Uploads must be submitted to the upload queue before 17:00 hours on the Upload Deadline dates below in order for the data to be included in the generated reports. The upload process will be allowed to fully process all entries in the queue before the reports are generated.

We recommend that you aim to complete uploads a few days prior to the deadlines, to allow time to check your data and make any necessary corrections.

Records can be manually created or modified using the Record screen up until the time when the system is closed down at 17:00 hours on the Upload Deadline dates below.

Timetable to submit April 2018 data onwards

The Open Exeter platform for the Cancer Waiting Times Database is to be decommissioned on 25 May 2018. All data from April 2009 to 3 May 2018 will have been migrated to the replacement system by this time.

The submission timetable on the new platform is changing in the following ways:

  1. The previously advertised 'Upload Deadline' dates will be the deadline for bulk uploads to the system. Bulk uploads must be submitted to the upload queue before 17:00 hours on the 'Bulk Upload Deadline'.
  2. A 'Cooling Off' day is being added to the timetable to allow for manual on screen edits to be undertaken on the next working day which follows the 'Bulk Upload Deadline'. The system will reopen at 9:00 on this day and any manual on screen edits must be made before 17:00 on the 'On Screen Edits Deadline' in order for the data to be included in generated reports.
  3. Twice a year revisions to data will be processed. The first set of revisions will be processed in December for April to September data. This is indicated in the timetable below. The timetable for future revisions to data will be announced in future updates to the timetable.
  4. Monthly and Quarterly reports will be synchronized. This means that the Quarterly reports first generated from the system will be composed of data from the monthly reports. It will not include changes to months 1 and 2 of the quarter as was the case on the Open Exeter system. Monthly and Quarterly reports will be updated via the revisions process outlined in 3.

Records can be manually created or modified at any time when the system is open.

We recommend that you aim to complete uploads a few days prior to the deadlines, to allow time to check your data and make any necessary corrections.
