National Cancer Patient Experience Survey

24 June 2024

At the NHS, we want our patients to have the best experience possible and having continuous patient feedback is crucial in helping us to deliver what patients want and need. 

The National Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES) asks for feedback from cancer patients (16 years and over), to inform and improve local cancer services across England.

Those who were treated for cancer as an inpatient or day-case, and left hospital in April, May or June 2024, will be invited to take part in the survey later in the year. 

The NHS and cancer charities use the results to understand what is working well and which areas need improvement. The results enable them to identify national and local priorities and work with patients and partners to deliver change. The 2024 CPES fieldwork will begin in autumn 2024, with results available next year.
