The 2021 results of the Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey (U16 CPES) have been published.
The U16 CPES measures experiences of tumour and cancer care for children across England. The survey is now in its second year.
The survey’s respondents are children who were aged between eight and 15 at the point of discharge, and parents or carers of children aged up to 15.
From a national perspective, some of the findings were:
- 9.01 out of 10 was the average parent/carer rating of the overall experience of their child’s care
- 89% of parents/carers rated the overall experience of their child’s care as 8 or more out of 10.
- 95% of children report being looked after very well or quite well, with less than 1% saying they were not looked after well.
