To ask the Scottish Government what progress it has made on including the experiences of cancer patients under the age of 16 in the next Scottish Cancer Patient Experience Survey.
Answered by: Shona Robison 26 September 2017
We recognise the importance of ensuring that patient experience is captured and used in a meaningful way to influence the care that NHS Scotland provides children and young people with cancer. The content and format of the next Scottish Cancer Patient Experience Survey is currently being considered and will be discussed and agreed with stakeholders towards the end of this year.
