The information requested is not centrally held. The National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) recently conducted a study of the 30-day mortality rates for patients with a diagnosis of bowel cancer who received a major surgical resection. Further information about the study is available on the NCIN website at:

www.ncin.org.uk/cancer_type_and_topic_specific_work/cancer_type_specific_work/postoperative_mortality.aspx

Following this analysis of the 30-day postoperative mortality for bowel cancer, the NCIN proposes to work with clinical leads across all tumour sites to see where this study can be repeated.
