Macmillan in Wales has worked with the Welsh Government to develop the country’s first cancer patient experience survey.
The survey, which is available in Welsh and English, is being posted to a selection of people across Wales who received a cancer diagnosis between June 2012 and March 2013.
‘Macmillan is really pleased to be a partner in this important initiative,’ says Susan Morris, General Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales. ‘Local Health Boards must take the survey’s results into consideration to inform planning for future cancer services. This will ensure these services meet people’s clinical and non-clinical needs and that services are truly person-centred.’
Welsh Health Minister Mark Drakeford adds: ‘The best people to ask about how cancer services are being delivered in Wales are the patients themselves. There is a great deal to learn from what they have to say.’ The survey’s results will be published by November.
