Resource Information
 
Description: Attainment of standards of care, temporal and non temporal and two year survival were compared between two cohorts of head and neck cancer patients, diagnosed in 1996-7 and 1999-2000 in the South West of England. Standards of care increased, waiting times increased and 2 year survival rates remained unaltered. Being seen in a multidisciplinary clinic correlated strongly with patient survival.
