Abstract

Treatment and survival of patients with inoperable Non-small-cell lung cancer in 1997 (n=117) and 2001 (n=126), before and after the introduction of a multidisciplinary team, was examined in a single centre. There were no differences in age, sex and extent of deprivation between the two years. However, in 2001, 23% of patients received chemotherapy treatment compared with 7% in 1997 (P<0.001). Median survival in 2001 was 6.6 months compared with 3.2 months in 1997 (P<0.001).
