Research survey: NHS England Cancer Patient Experience Survey

What is the survey about?   

The National Cancer Patient Experience Survey is designed to monitor national progress on cancer care, drive local improvements, and assist cancer care providers, charities and health commissioners to inform their work supporting cancer patients. The 2021 survey is currently under development, and we need your feedback on the current draft to improve the survey, and make sure it accurately captures peoples’ experiences. As a thank you for your time, those selected to take part will be given a £30 Amazon or Love2shop voucher.

What’s the criteria for taking part?
