Secondary analysis exploring the differences in peoples' experiences of cancer care is now published and the full report is available at www.gov.scot/Publications/2017/09/6521.

It will help our understanding of the differences in cancer care experiences between different groups of patients and will assist in identifying where to target future improvements.

About the Survey

The Scottish Cancer Patient Experience Survey is a national postal survey run in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. The survey asks about patients' experience of their Cancer care journey, from thinking that something might be wrong with them to the support they received after their acute-care treatment.

The survey results will help us to better understand people’s experience of cancer care in Scotland so that we can make sure that our cancer care meets the needs and expectations of patients.

The first Cancer Patient Experience Survey in Scotland was run in 2015. For further details on the survey, including copies of the questionnaire and all results, please use the link below:
