What is the National Bowel Cancer Audit?

The National Bowel Cancer Audit (NBOCA) was established to describe and compare the diagnosis, care and outcomes of patients diagnosed with bowel cancer in England and Wales; it is now well established and the 2017 Annual Report includes data on over 30,000 patients. The Audit’s overall aim is to measure the quality of care and survival of patients with bowel cancer in England and Wales.
