Why We Are Consulting

Under the auspices of the Scottish Cancer Taskforce, National Cancer Quality Performance Indicators (QPIs) were developed to drive continuous quality improvement in cancer care across NHSScotland.

In December 2012, Colorectal Cancer QPIs were published, and following 3 years of national comparative data, these have now been subject to formal review.

In order to ensure success of the National Cancer QPIs in driving quality improvement it is critical that QPIs continue to be clinically relevant and focus on areas which will result in improvements to the quality of patient care.

What Happens Next

All responses will be collated for review and decision by the Colorectal Cancer QPI Review Group. Those who have participated in the engagement process will receive an overview of the changes made and a copy of the final Colorectal Cancer QPI document, ahead of publication in 2017.
