Number of lung cancer operations performed in 2014:  22

Qamar Abid works as part of a team of thoracic surgeons at University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust
Click here to see data on how this team performed in 2014, including;

  • the number of operations to remove lung cancer performed by each surgeon in the team
  • the adjusted survival rates 30 days after surgery to remove lung cancer
  • the adjusted survival rates 90 days after surgery to remove lung cancer
  • the length of time (defined as median days) patients having cancer surgery at this Trust spend in hospital.

This data comes from the Lung Cancer Clinical Outcomes Publication.  This project makes the results achieved by surgical teams treating lung cancer within NHS England available to the public.

The latest report covers operations performed in 2014.  More information about this project is available here.

Early survival after lung cancer surgery in this hospital

Number of operations Survived after 30 days (adjusted percentage) Odds ratio* and 99.8 confidence interval for 30 day survival Survival after 90 days (adjusted percentage) Odds ratio* and 99.8 confidence interval for 90 day survival
University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust 173 96.4% 0.58
0.30 - 1.13%
94.6% 0.7
0.40 - 1.23%
England total 5657 97.93% 96.22%
This hospital team is not an outlier at either 30 or 90 day survival.

Number and type of operations performed

This graph shows the number and percentage of each type of heart surgery done by this consultant surgeon. The number of operations is shown in the line going up the left hand side. The percentage (%) underneath each coloured bar shows how much of this consultant's heart surgery is made up each procedure type.

The 'key' underneath the graph shows what procedure(s) each coloured bar shows. The abbreviations used are explained below:

  • Isolated: This procedure has been carried out on its own. No other procedures were done during the same operation.
  • CABG: Coronary artery bypass grafting
  • AVR: Aortic valve replacement
  • MV: Mitral valve procedure

You can find out more about these procedures in the 'About cardiothoracic surgery' section. If you or someone you know if having heart surgery, it may be helpful to know whether the consultant does lots of that procedure. If you have questions or concerns about the number of procedures being done at your hospital, you should speak to your heart surgeon.

In-hospital survival rate (risk adjusted)

This graph shows the percentage of patients who survived their operation and left hospital alive. This is the 'In-hospital survival rate'. Some patients are more unwell than others and some need more complex operations. Hence, hospitals and consultants perform a range of cardiac operations and the type of patients they operate on can differ. So that we can make fair comparisons between them, the survival rates have been 'risk adjusted' to take into account the illness of the patient and the complexity of the operation. The dot on the graph shows the risk-adjusted survival for the unit/surgeon you have selected and the number of operations performed over the last 3 year period. The blue line indicates the predicted survival and the red dotted lines the range of results expected, worked out by complex statistics.

Average patient risk profile

Some risk factors like age, gender, and other medical problems can affect the outcome of heart surgery.

Each of the graphs below shows what percentage of this consultant's patients have each risk factor (light blue bar on the left) next to the average for the whole of the UK (dark blue bar on the right). This can tell you whether the consultant operates on high risk patients in general, and whether they specialise in doing particular types of complicated surgery, like operations on the thoracic aorta.

You can find out more about the risk factors in the 'About cardiothoracic surgery' section.

Risk adjusted in-hospital survival for all surgeons

This graph shows the percentage of patients who survived their operation and left hospital alive. This is the 'In-hospital survival rate'. Some patients are more unwell than others and some need more complex operations. Hence, hospitals and consultants perform a range of cardiac operations and the type of patients they operate on can differ. So that we can make fair comparisons between them, the survival rates have been 'risk adjusted' to take into account the illness of the patient and the complexity of the operation. The dot on the graph shows the risk-adjusted survival for the unit/surgeon you have selected in comparison with the other units and surgeons in GB&I.
