Patient experience research commissioned by NHS England reveals ‘deeply disturbing’ findings

Anational survey of people with cancer has revealed ‘deeply disturbing’ findings from some black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) respondents, a leading charity says. The results of the latest annual National Cancer Patient Experience Survey (CPES), which looks at people’s experience of cancer care, reveals that black and Asian people were more likely to say their treatment options were only partially explained or not at all. They were also more likely to report being only partially involved in treatment and care decisions.
