The Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce (LSCT) have launched a new survey to gain a greater understanding of the experiences of people who have a less survivable cancer and who receive palliative care.  They want to hear from as many people as possible who have experience of palliative care and the less survivable cancers (either their own experience or experience of a loved one). 

The survey aims to provide insights so The LSCT can lobby for improvements to palliative care services, and to highlight any good practice.  We know from our support groups that people have varied experiences of palliative care, and this survey aims to provide statistical and anecdotal evidence to identify areas of improvement. 

“Anecdotally we hear of varied experiences of palliative care. This survey will provide an evidence base for us to better understand issues and gaps, and to advocate for improved care for less survivable cancers.

“The Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce exists to represent people diagnosed with one of these cancers so it’s crucial that we hear their opinions and give them a voice.”

Julie Harrington - Vice Chair, Less Survivable Cancer Taskforce

The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete.  You can respond anonymously or include your email address at the end if you would like to be kept up to date with the findings.  The survey will remain open until the end of September at the earliest.

A short report on the anonymised findings will be published once the information has been collated.
