Picker, an independent health and social care research charity, has been instructed by NHS England, to develop a new Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey to understand and improve experiences of children’s cancer care in England.
To help develop the survey, Picker is holding a series of discussion groups to collate information required by NHS England by exploring the views and experiences of children diagnosed with cancer and parents or carers of children diagnosed with cancer. They want to speak to the following groups:
- Parents of children aged 0-15 years who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer or have received cancer care in England in the last 12 months, in the NHS.
- Children aged 8-15 years who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer or have received cancer care in England in the last 12 months, in the NHS.
The discussion groups will last for up to 90 minutes and participants will be given a £30 gift voucher and up to £10 reimbursement for travel expenses as a thank you.
Each group will consist of 6-8 participants and two researchers, who will facilitate the group. The discussion will be audio-recorded and responses typed up. For more information click on the link below:
