May 2019: Changes have been made to align this quality standard with the NICE guideline on prostate cancer. Statement 2 has been amended so that active surveillance is now an equal choice alongside prostatectomy and radiotherapy for people with low-risk localised prostate cancer, in line with the updated guideline. Terminology has been changed from 'men' to 'people' throughout to ensure that people who do not identify as men but who have a prostate are included in the guideline. References and links to source guidance have also been updated.
