In this report on the second pilot year collection of national radiotherapy data, data were received from 66 out of 74 service locations across Australia. These services contributed information on over 56,400 courses of radiotherapy delivered in 2014–15. For non-emergency treatment, 50% of patients started treatment within 10 days and 90% started within 28 days. For those who needed emergency treatment, 91% began treatment within the emergency timeframe.
