Patient Experience in {{ccg16nm}}

{{score}} % of respondents in {{ccg16nm}} rated their overall cancer care as excellent in the 2015 Cancer Patient Experience Survey.

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, involved in decisions, and whether their views and preferences were listened to and taken into account.

The Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES) is an annual survey sent to some people who have recently experienced cancer 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 how to make cancer services better.

Questions in CPES range from 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 NI CPES 2015.
