Response:

Do you have data showing the outcome of breast cancer surgery at your trust in relation to:

 

1.   Survival rates for patients five years after surgery?

We have no data on survival rates. The hospital is not always informed when a patient die, so we would not be able to provide an accurate figure for this request.

 

Also for the recurrence rate the patients may have had a further operation elsewhere (patient choice) so again the data would not be accurate.

 

We would advise the requester to use the Office of National Statistics to obtain data on cancer survival rates.
