First findings of All.Can patient survey presented at UK Parliament event

The All.Can initiative has presented the first findings of its UK patient survey at a UK Parliamentary event. They showed that 36% of people considered the cancer diagnosis stage as the biggest cause of inefficiency in their care. Two in five people with cancer had been initially misdiagnosed with something else – sometimes on multiple occasions – and one in five had to wait more than six months for a cancer diagnosis.

The findings were presented at the Britain Against Cancer conference, hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer. The event took place on 4 December at the UK Parliament in London. The UK national initiative is the first of nine countries to release findings from the All.Can patient survey, which sought patients’ and carers’ perspectives on inefficiencies in cancer care.
