The NHS Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey
The NHS wants to find out what is good about the cancer and tumour care being given to children, and what could be better.
The Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey asks questions about NHS cancer or tumour care in England. The survey is sent to children under the age of 16 and their parents or carers who have recently had care at certain hospitals in England. Some children who are 16 years old may also be sent a survey if they received care within the past year as a 15 year old.
The survey asks children about their cancer or tumour care. The questions ask about things like the hospital ward, the hospital staff and the treatment given. The answers of the survey will be used to understand and improve cancer care across England, to help make care the best it can be.
There are three surveys: A survey for parents/carers of 0-7 year olds; a survey for 8-11 year olds, with some questions for their parents/carers to complete and a survey for 12-15 year olds, with some questions for their parents/carers to complete.
