Delays during Chemotherapy treatment

Simon Finnigan made this Freedom of Information request to The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear The Christie NHS Foundation Trust,

Can you please furnish me with information related to the delays experienced by patients undergoing chemotherapy at your hospital. I would ideally like to know the number and percentage of patients that experience delays while being given chemotherapy, as well as the mean, median, mode and variance of the delays experienced. To clarify, I want the delay per individual visit for chemotherapy treatment, not average figures over a period of time for all visitors.

I would ideally like this information broken down into monthly period for the previous five years, but if this would take this request over the allowed costs incurred then please supply me with information from the present, going as far back on a month by month basis while remaining within the cost limitations.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Finnigan
