Thoracic OutcomesThe Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust submit their data as one unified Trust, although they operate services on two separate sites. The thoracic surgery data presented here is for both of these hospitals combined.
The Lung Cancer Clinical Outcomes Publication or LCCOP 2019 (2017 data).
LCCOP is a compulsory audit of surgery for lung cancer in NHS hospitals in England. It does not cover SCTS units in the devolved nations or Ireland.
The outcomes of patients undergoing surgery to remove a lung cancer in this Trust in 2017 can be downloaded in PDF form here.
Several outcomes are reported. These are the percentage of patients alive at 30 days and one year after surgery, the median length of stay after surgery, the overall and the early stage performance status 0-1 resection rate for that unit.
Survival data are adjusted to take into account some of the characteristics for the patient population being treated.
Beside these numbers are the national data for England.
