Patient Experience in {{ccg16nm}}

On average, cancer patients rated their overall care {{score}} out of 10 for the 2018 Northern Ireland Cancer Patient Experience Survey (NI CPES 2018) in {{ccg16nm}}.

Patient experience encompasses most aspects of care, outside of the impact of treatment. It includes information about whether patients feel they were treated with dignity and respect, given good information and involved in decisions about their treatment and care.

The Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES) is a survey sent to people who have recently experienced cancer care in Northern Ireland. 

The results of the survey provide vital insight into the experiences of people treated for cancer. It is used to understand what could improve patient satisfaction, evaluate how well people are cared for and to identify ways to improve patient satisfaction by making cancer services better.

Questions in CPES cover a wide range of aspects of care, including whether patients felt they were:

• treated with dignity and respect
• given useful information about their diagnosis and treatment
• involved in decisions about their care
• satisfied with the administration of care.

The data presented below is from the NI CPES 2018.
