Cancer: Surgery

Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) prostatectomies and (b) cystectomies for cancer there were in the latest year for which figures are available; and which NHS trusts performed (i) fewer than 10, (ii) between 10 and 39 and (iii) 40 or more such procedures in that year. (281584)

I refer the hon. Member to the written answer I gave to the hon. Member for South-West Norfolk (Christopher Fraser) on 20 March 2009, Official Report, column 1361W. A table showing the count of finished consultant episodes for cancer-related prostatectomy, prostatectomy and cystoprosatectomy by trust in 2007-08, the latest year for which this information is available, has already been placed in the Library.
