The Cancer Patient Experience Survey has been designed to monitor national progress on cancer care; to provide information to drive local quality improvements; to assist commissioners and providers of cancer care; and to inform the work of the various charities and stakeholder groups supporting cancer patients.
The survey is conducted by Picker Institute Europe on behalf of NHS England. The results are published on the National Cancer Patient Experience publication website.
These are the latest Official Statistics for England for the Cancer Patient Experience Survey:
Local reports are available for Clinical Commissioning Groups, Trusts and Cancer Alliances presenting the latest results specific for local areas. These are designed to inform commissioners and providers about their patients’ experiences and to identify areas for local improvement.
