I have derived a model for predicting 10 survival, based on certain 
risk factors. The follow-up time in my dataset is variable, so I have
used Cox 
methods in the derivation. 

But to test it I have been using Hosmer Lemeshow (the downloadable hl 
command in STATA). My problem is that I can shorten the follow-up on 
the longer observations to 10 years in order to run this, but there is 
nothing I can do with the shorter follow-ups. So, the test shows that 
the risk is over-estimated, because some of those who are included in 
the observed 10 year risk only have 5 years of follow-up. 

Does anyone know if there is a goodness of fit test that can use 
variable follow-up in STATA (similar to the post estimation command 
for Harell's C instead of AUROC)? 

Many thanks for your help,
