In November 2018, the Wales Cancer Network welcomed a Welsh Government decision to implement a Single Cancer Pathway (SCP) in Wales from June 2019.
As a result, every Welsh health board is developing a plan to ensure the majority of their patients, from the very first point where cancer might be suspected, receive cancer diagnostic tests and start their treatment within 62 days. Equally, for those patients who do not have cancer, they will be reassured promptly, reducing unnecessary stress and worry.
As part of this work, we would like to gather views from patients who have had an experience of cancer services in Wales. We especially want to know about the timings and waits you may have experienced when needing to see a specialist, or when having tests, before you were able to receive treatment, and what additional support, if any, could have been provided to you during this time. We need your input and want you to share your honest and open thoughts with us.
Taking part in this survey is voluntary and you may choose not to answer some or any of the survey questions. Your answers are anonymous and we will use, manage and store all data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 currently used in the UK. It should take about 10 minutes to complete the survey.
If you would like to tell us more about your experience please get in touch with us by email on PCC.firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will get back in touch with you.
We appreciate that completing this survey and providing this information may raise concern. If you do have concerns please contact your GP, Key Worker or a member of the team that provided your care. Alternatively, you can contact our charity partners on the following support numbers:
