CANCER care at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) has received positive results in a national survey of patients commissioned by NHS England.

The National Cancer Patient Experience Survey asks cancer patients to score different elements of their treatment, with patients scoring the trust 9 out of 10 for the quality of their care overall.

The trust scored over 80 percent in all categories and above the national average as to whether people were satisfied with the care.

Nurse Consultant Carole Connor, who leads the team, said: “This survey is very important to us because it is direct feedback from our patients.

"These results are very promising because they show that the work undertaken by our dedicated team is making a difference to local people as we support them through their journey.

"Although we are pleased to know that our patients feel the standard of their care is high in many areas, we are always looking to make improvements; the outstanding staff and facilities at our new Stratford Hospital unit will help us do this. “
