Fit for Purpose
  • Publication timeline requires the new cancer
    waiting times data being fit for purpose
  • New cancer waiting times information recorded by
    NHS Boards must be of sufficient quality and
    reliability to publish
  • Figures showing performance against the new
    targets will first be published on ISDs website
    during June 2010
  • ISD Scotland will work with NHS Boards and the
    Scottish Government to monitor the completeness
    and quality of the information submitted by NHS
    Boards

Fit for Purpose
  • Fit for Purpose exercise to monitor the
    completeness and quality of the information
    submitted by NHS Boards
  • Work with boards and the Scottish Government to
    assess fit for purpose by
  • Seeking advice from the boards, Scottish
    Government, ISD New Ways colleagues, and our
    English and Welsh counterparts
  • Produce high-level plan of work activities/tasks,
    for example
  • - Quarterly case ascertainment report
  • - Calculate cohort/baseline for each cancer
    site
  • - Number of Patients Diagnosed During Quarter
    (Actual from SCWaTS)
  • - 3 year (2004-2006) Quarterly Average Number
    of Cancer Registrations
  • - Estimated Case Ascertainment (actual/cancer
    reg100)
  • - Compare with existing CWT targets
    (indicative levels)
  • Require boards to re-submit Oct Dec 09 data, in
    order to generate an accurate and complete
    quarterly extract to use as a baseline to analyse
    fit for purpose
