Reporting HANA data

No personal identifiers will be used in HANA reports. Once a year Dendrite will combine the information from individual hospitals with data from other parts of England and Wales. They will process the data and organise it by region, hospital trust and consultant. They will then remove your name, date of birth, NHS number and any other information that could be used to identify you. Dendrite will work with Saving Faces to produce annual HANA reports and local action plans. HANA results at regional, hospital trust and consultant levels will be compared with each other, and also with national standards of care for patients with head and neck cancer which have been set out by NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and BAHNO.
