Cancer Treatment Period

A Cancer Treatment Period is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

A Cancer Treatment Period is initiated when a Decision To Treat for a cancer condition is made and ends when the PATIENT receives the Planned Cancer Treatment specified in the Cancer Care Plan covering the PATIENTS condition. This is the same as TREATMENT START DATE (CANCER).

The full list of International Classification of Diseases (ICD) diagnosis codes is available on the NHS Digital website at: Cancer Waiting Times.

If the PATIENT receives several different types of treatment within the same Cancer Care Plan (e.g. surgery, followed by Chemotherapy, followed by Radiotherapy), then each stage has its own Cancer Treatment Period of 31 days between DECISION TO TREAT DATE (or EARLIEST CLINICALLY APPROPRIATE DATE) and TREATMENT START DATE (CANCER).

CANCER CARE SETTING (TREATMENT) is used to derive whether a waiting time adjustment between CANCER TREATMENT PERIOD START DATE and TREATMENT START DATE (CANCER) may be recorded in WAITING TIME ADJUSTMENT (TREATMENT).
