Provider-based Cancer Waiting Times for April 2018

The latest monthly statistics on waiting times for suspected and diagnosed cancer patients accessing NHS services were initially released on 14th June 2018 by NHS England. Following approval from NHS Improvement, Heart of England NHS FT (RR1) has merged into University Hospitals Birmingham NHS FT (RKK). The changes are effective as of 1 April 2018. University Hospitals Birmingham NHS FT have retained their Organisation name and code. In addition, the cancer waiting times system excludes records from the 62 day standards which do not contain a first seen provider. A number of providers have submitted some records without this information. This issue affects data from April 2018. In most cases, the number of records affected is very small. Hence the press release, the provider workbook and CSV files were updated with related footnotes on 13th September 2018.
