Public Health England Quality of Life survey

Public Health England, NHS England and NHS Improvement are leading the way in cancer care by recognising that quality of life (QoL) outcomes are as important to patients as survival.

We are launching a nationwide QoL survey in September 2020. Initially we will survey people who have been diagnosed with breast, prostate or colorectal cancer.

People with all other cancer types will be included from 2021 onwards. People will be a sent a survey 18 months after their diagnosis to assess their QoL.

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.

This is an ambitious programme with a scale and depth that isn’t being matched anywhere else in the world.
