Welcome to the website for the National Cancer Patient Experience Survey. The survey is an important part of the national NHS Cancer Programme, which places patient experience on a par with clinical effectiveness and safety as a key strategic priority. It has been designed to monitor national progress on cancer care, 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 overseen by a national Cancer Patient Experience Advisory Group. This Advisory Group set the principles and objectives of the survey programme and guide questionnaire development. The survey is commissioned and managed by NHS England. The implementation, analyses and reporting is completed by Picker.
