General description
The patients shown here are those newly diagnosed with cancer who started definitive treatment via the Urgent Suspected Cancer route. The national target for these patients is: at least 95 per cent of patients diagnosed with cancer, via the urgent suspected cancer route will start definitive treatment within 62 days of receipt of referral.

Care should be taken when interpreting percentages, especially when dealing with small numbers.
