National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set: Change

Closes 7 Aug 2017

Opened 13 Jul 2017


NHS England and NHS Digital are introducing changes to the National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set and we would like your feedback on the proposed changes.

The changes include:

  • new data items to support the new 28 Day Faster Diagnosis operational standard and breach allocation policy
  • replacement of collection system within NHS Digital.

Together with our stakeholders and data experts, we have developed a draft data set and we are now seeking opinions on the feasibility of collecting the new/changed data items. In addition we want to get your views on the proposed implementation and functionality of the new system.

Before answering our questions, it would be helpful for you to read the Related Documents (below).

NHS England and NHS Digital are very grateful for your participation in this consultation. Your feedback will be reviewed by our Project Board on 8 August 2017 before we finalise the changes to the data set and system functionality, prior to submission for approval by the Data Coordination Board.
