Scottish Cancer Patient Experience Survey 2018

Around 5,000 patients took part in Scotland's first cancer patient experience survey. The survey covered the care journey that a cancer patient experiences, from thinking that something might be wrong with them to the support they received after their acute-care treatment.

Overall perceptions of care were very positive - when asked to provide an overall rating of their care on a scale from 0 (very poor) to 10 (very good), 95 per cent of patients rated their care as '7' or higher.
