Clinical Outcomes

Monitoring clinical outcome data is an integral part of our quality assessment. It is led by Professor Andrew Renehan, supported by a team of clinical and research data managers.

Collecting and monitoring

Since 2008, we have prospectively collected our clinical data and outcomes across three linked databases for colorectal cancer, peritoneal tumours and metastases, and anal cancer.

This data is monitored regularly through our quarterly mortality and morbidity meeting. To record complications from our operations in a standardised way, we’ve used the National Cancer Institute (CCTAE) system since 2008. We’ve also included the Clavien-Dindo classification system since 2011. This allows us to compare and demonstrate that while our major surgical cases have increased each year, our complication rates are among the lowest in the world.
