Current process for data collection
The National Oesophago-gastric Cancer Audit recommenced data collection on 1 April 2011. Data collected for patients diagnosed with oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012 has been collected using the first OG Audit dataset and submitted via the first OG Audit data collection system. The data submission deadline for this period of data collection is 1 October 2012.
Introduction of new datasets from 1 April 2012
From 1 April 2012, the Audit has been extended to include patients diagnosed with high-grade dysplasia of the Barrett's oesophagus (HGD). This required a revision to the old dataset to include new data items for these patients.
