If you have been diagnosed with breast, prostate or colorectal cancer in the past 18 months please help the NHS and Public Health England improve quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer in the future by taking part in this survey
Public Health England, NHS England and NHS Improvement are leading the way in cancer care by recognising that quality of life outcomes are as important to patients as survival.
The nationwide 'Cancer Quality of Life Survey' will survey people with breast, prostate or colorectal cancer 18 months after their diagnosis to assess their quality of life.
People with all other cancer types will also be included from 2021 onwards. The information collected from the survey will be used to work out how best to support the growing number of people living with and beyond cancer.
People who are on the national cancer register will receive a survey invitation through the post 18 months after their diagnosis – this invitation will encourage patients to complete online, a paper based option is also available.
The survey takes between 5 -10 minutes to complet and there is a free helpline and website to support patients www.CancerQoL.england.nhs.uk 0800 783 1775.
Please consider taking part if this concerns you so you can help others diagnosed with cancer in the future by sharing your experiences. Please click here to read our patient FAQs on the survey
