Help improve quality of life for people living with cancer

NHS England and Public Health England are running a Cancer Quality Of Life survey for people in England who have been diagnosed with cancer.

The aim of the survey is to find out how quality of life may have changed for people diagnosed with cancer. They want to see where care is working well or not so well, and if any new services are needed. To do this, they are asking how people who have experienced cancer are feeling and comparing their answers with information about their cancer diagnosis and treatment. This will help the NHS improve the way they support people living with and beyond cancer.
