A survey of Cancer Patients in Scotland has found high overall ratings for the care they experienced. It found that the vast majority (95%) rated their cancer care positively. The survey of 5,000 people also found 97% respondents said they were always treated with dignity and respect by healthcare professionals.
However, the Scottish Cancer Patient Experience Survey also reports that just over half (55%) of those surveyed received sufficient emotional and psychological support from medics. Three in 10 people (31%) said they were supported to some extent, while 13% said they received no support at all. Read more about the report’s findings here
