The number of patients surviving after a bowel cancer diagnosis has improved over recent decades in many European countries. Despite historically having similar survival rates to the UK, Denmark has recently seen greater improvement than the UK. This improvement follows special measures that Denmark has implemented to tackle their low bowel cancer survival rates. Investigating the difference these special measures have made will be very helpful, as a similar study is now taking place in the Yorkshire and Humber region. By comparing the patients, treatment, management and outcome of patients in Denmark and Yorkshire over the last decade, we hope to identify key aspects which help to improve outcomes for patients.
