Delays during Chemotherapy treatment

Simon Finnigan made this Freedom of Information request to Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology 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 partially successful.

Dear Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology 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

Sue Relph, Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Mr Finnigan

Thank you for your FOI request, unfortunately the information you have
requested is not recorded by the Trust.

We monitor waits/delays across the Trust with our in-house Patient
Feedback Survey. We would be happy to supply you with information from
that if required, however this method of collection only began in
September 2009 and is identifiable by department only not individual
treatments.

Kind regards

Sue Relph

Please find attached information as requested. I have given you the results for the timeframe we have been recording this information. To break it down on a monthly basis would incur costs as the information is held on a database that has to be manually transferred to an xl spreadsheet to produce the graphs.

If there is a particular clinic you want month to month information on this may be possible for the last 12 months, however I can assure you that the graph does replicate a month by month report.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.
