Every day we hear from people who feel isolated – whether that means receiving their cancer diagnosis on their own, having to cook their own meals after surgery or making their own way to hospital every day during radiotherapy. But despite this wealth of anecdotal evidence, we didn’t know the full scale of the problem. To find out, we launched the first-ever research into the number and profile of isolated cancer patients in the UK.

This research is a huge breakthrough in seeing the real picture of how long people are living after a cancer diagnosis. For years we’ve counted the number of people who hit certain benchmarks: one, five or ten years since diagnosis, but it is median survival times that gives an accurate new picture of how long on average people might expect to live with different cancers, and how this has shifted over time.
