‘The NCPA is an exciting and essential piece of work that will allow us a unique insight into the current management of prostate cancer from the perspectives of the multidisciplinary team but more importantly from patients. The knowledge gained will be crucial to improve outcomes and services for men suffering from this disease.’

‘Not only is the NPCA the first National Clinical Audit designed to address unanswered questions in prostate cancer care, it is the first to use a national data collection system that can deliver robust, real-time data with minimum burden to patients and staff.’
