Latest Lung Cancer Clinical Outcomes Publication (LCCOP) Report for England released

December 6, 2016

The latest LCCOP report, covering lung cancer resections preformed in the English NHS in 2014, has been published on 6th December 2016.

This project is commissioned by HQIP and delivered by the National Lung Cancer Audit team with the support of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Important changes this year include some adjustment of the survival outcomes to account for case mix, and the addition of unit-level length of stay data. National-level data on one year survival and a breakdown of the operations that were performed is also available for the first time.

There has been a 16% increase in the volume of surgery performed compared to 2013. Survival rates 30 and 90 days after surgery remain very good, with all units reporting survival rates within an acceptable range.

The data is available to search at clinician and unit level on both SCTS.org and NHS Choices from today.
