The most recent round of national cancer peer reviews took place from November 2004 to March 2007. Peer review looks at multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) by cancer network not by primary care trust.
The most recent round of national cancer peer review showed that in 90 per cent. of local urology MDTs and in 94 per cent. of specialist urology MDTs, all new urological patients, including prostate cancer patients, were reviewed by the MDTs.
The information requested on the management of patients by MDTs throughout their care is not available centrally.
