Yorkshire Cancer Patient Survey 2018


1. Introduction

We are keen to find out about the quality of care you have received as a cancer patient, and in particular, the role played by a clinical nurse specialist (CNS), who may also be called your keyworker or support worker or care coordinator The CNS or keyworker plays an extremely important role in each patient’s care (often called pathway of care). They provide support through the pathway from diagnosis, to treatment and follow up and beyond including supportive care. A total of 90% of cancer patients were given the name of a CNS according to the National Cancer Patient Experience Survey for England 2016. We would like to look at the picture in Yorkshire and the Humber. Pease fill out your survey by 30/09/18. You may remain anonymous or you may choose to give us your contact details. We may follow up a number of respondents to talk to them in more detail.
