Cancer 62 Day Patient Target List (CANPTL62)

BAAS: Pending

Frequency: Weekly

Background to the collection

The 'Cancer 62 Day Patient Target List' (CANPTL62) collection is a weekly snapshot which shows the number of patients on the cancer 62-day pathway, who are at risk of breaching the 62-day standard (two month/62-day wait from urgent GP referral to first definitive treatment). The collection is submitted by trusts which provide cancer services. Different terms are used interchangeably for the abbreviation 'PTL': Patient Target List and Priority Tracking List. The patients on the 62-day pathway are all patients who are referred via an urgent referral for suspected cancer from a GP or GDP (known as two week wait patients) where cancer has not been excluded. A two week wait patient only comes off the 62-day pathway when a cancer diagnosis is excluded.
