Cancer Patient Experience Survey 2021

By 6th December 2021 December 20th, 2021 No Comments

NHS England and Improvement has launched its 2021 national Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES).

The survey asks for feedback from patients, aged 16 and over*, who were treated for cancer as an inpatient or day case, and left hospital in April, May or June 2021, to take part.

Patient feedback is crucial in helping organisations that commission and provide cancer services across Humber, Coast and Vale understand what is working well and identify areas for improvement.

The results from CPES will help to improve local cancer services by enabling Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance to identify local priorities and work with patients and partners to deliver change.

This year the Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES) questionnaire has been redesigned, guided by the CPES Advisory Group, to reflect developments in cancer care and treatment, and national policy. The results of the survey will be available in Summer 2022.
