NBOCA have moved from three data submission deadlines to two data submission deadlines. For the 2019 annual report the first data submission deadline was 16 November 2018. The second (and final) data submission deadline is expected to be late April 2019 (date to be confirmed). The delays this year are due to awaiting for approvals for data linkage.
Any new tumour records added after the first deadline cannot be included in the outcomes for outlier reporting in the 2019 Annual Report or Clinical Outcomes Publication because they will not be linked to HES/PEDW or ONS mortality data. Treatment and pathology can be added and updated up until the final deadline.
