Subject:        Patients that became resident for cancer care/treatment with inside a hospital

    

 

Request:

In the years 2015 & 2016 of the patients that became resident for Cancer care/treatment with inside a hospital managed by your trust, please list the annual total for the patients as described?

Further to the above please also provide the annual total for those patients families who received a pass entitling free parking during the patients stay to reduce the financial burden on the family visiting?

 

 

Response:

In the years 2015 & 2016 of the patients that became resident for Cancer care/treatment with inside a hospital managed by your trust, please list the annual total for the patients as described? Number of patients receiving cancer care: –

 

2015       830

2016       863

 

These figures include all patients with a diagnosis code of C00-C97 or D05, who are admitted at Bolton during the period specified by the request (irrespective of when they are diagnosed).  I have excluded multiple admissions – patients with more than one admission are only counted once.

Further to the above please also provide the annual total for those patients families who received a pass entitling free parking during the patients stay to reduce the financial burden on the family visiting? We do have a car park solely for the use of patients visiting the oncology unit for treatment, supportive care and outpatients that is free of charge.  We do not charge and re fund so it might be hard to know the exact number.
