We assessed the hospital resource use of a cohort of patient with uveal melanoma and metastatic uveal melanoma identified in the Hospital Episode Statistics in England. This showed differences in where patients receive care before and after they develop metastatic disease, indicated a high burden on health care services, and significant travel distances for patients receiving care.
