Cancer Quality Performance Indicators (QPI)

The cancer strategy Beating Cancer: Ambition and Action published in March 2016 builds on the commitment made in the Better Cancer Care plan to 'develop a work programme which will define how we will take forward... quality indicators for cancer services' by further supporting a culture of continuous quality improvement in cancer care across NHSScotland. The new cancer strategy states a commitment to improving data collection to advance the quality and delivery of care for cancer patients.'

To achieve this, the Scottish Cancer Taskforce established the National Cancer Quality Steering Group (NCQSG), which includes responsibility for:

  • The development of small sets (approximately 10-15 indicators) of tumour specific national quality performance indicators (QPIs).
  • Overseeing the implementation of the national governance framework that underpins the reporting of performance against these national QPIs.

The QPIs have been developed collaboratively with the three Regional Cancer Networks (NOSCAN, SCAN, WOSCAN), Information Services Division (ISD), and Healthcare Improvement Scotland. The QPIs are published on the Healthcare Improvement Scotland website.

NHS Boards will be required to report against QPIs as part of a mandatory national cancer quality programme.

Further information is available from Cancer Audit.

National Reports

National Comparative reports will be compiled for each tumour site initially covering a single year's data. Future reporting will cover data for a three year period to include trend information.

The associated dashboards are password protected and accessible only to those with nhs net access or appropriate Scottish Government employees.

If you would like access to the Cancer QPI dashboards or require further information, please contact NSS.benchmarkingproject@nhs.net.
