The Cancer Patient Experience Survey
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 Integrated Care Systems (ICS), 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.
Changes to the 2021 survey were made following feedback and input from a wide range of stakeholders including clinicians, people with lived experience of cancer, cancer charities etc. These changes have been made to reflect the developments in provision of services since the last time the questionnaire was reviewed in 2015 and to ensure that we have the best possible insight into patient experience so that we can make the improvements which matter most. This was the first major review of the questionnaire since 2015.
