The Royal Surrey has been praised for overall quality of care by cancer patients in the 2010 National Cancer Patient Experience Survey.
Patients ranked the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the top 20% of Trusts participating in the survey in a number of categories:
95% of patients said that they were always given enough privacy when being examined or treated and 86% of patients said that hospital staff provided information about support groups. 97% of patients said that the last time they saw their clinical nurse specialist it was for the right amount of time and 92% agreed that they were listened to carefully when they last saw them.
The survey also revealed that patients with breast and prostate tumours consistently highly rated their care and treatment at The Royal Surrey.
This survey was carried out between 1st January and 30th March 2010, by the National Cancer Patient Experience Programme. It is one of the largest surveys of cancer patient experience and is part of the Cancer Reform Strategy, launched by the Department of Health in 2007.
