Patient experience and feedback

We welcome feedback on the experience of cancer patients and families.

Patient experience and feedback

The Cancer teams welcome feedback on the experience of patients and families as this helps us continually improve our services and understand where we are doing things well.

National Cancer Patient Experience Survey

Each year we participate in the national survey conducted on behalf of NHS England. The latest survey results can be found on the NCPES website.

There was no survey in 2019 or 2020 due to the global pandemic Covid-19. In 2021 the survey structure will change following consultation with the national advisory group.

Cancer Partnership Group

The Cancer Partnership Group was formed in 2003 and consists of people living with cancer and their carers with a focus on supporting the work of the clinicians, nurses and managers in improving cancer services at Mid Yorkshire.

Members are current or former cancer patients or their carers who live locally and want to use their experience to help develop new services and make improvements to existing ones. The group ensures the patient’s voice is heard.

The group meets every two months with the senior cancer management team and their views are sought to support the delivery of cancer services and enhance the patient experience. Group members are involved in areas such as patient experience, patient care, patient information, peer review and facilities.

If you have a patient or carer who would like to join this group, please contact Keely Clawson, Lead Cancer Nurse, by email
