National Cancer Patient Experience Survey 2021

People treated for cancer in England report generally positive experiences of care in hospital, according to the 2021 National Cancer Patient Experience Survey. But the results also show that care can lack personalisation, and that there are gaps in the wider support for people with cancer outside of hospital.  The survey included people aged 16 years and over with a confirmed primary diagnosis of cancer and who had been treated in hospital between April and June 2021. Almost 60,000 people responded to the survey, which was coordinated by Picker on behalf of NHS England and conducted between October 2021 and February 2022.
