Posted on Wed, 04/09/2013

The QE has been voted the top hospital in the country by patients receiving treatment for cancer.

The results came in analysis by MacMillan Cancer Support based on research commissioned by NHS England.

Carolyn Harper, Head of Cancer Services, said:

“We are extremely pleased to have been ranked by our patients as the top performing hospital in the country for cancer experience. It is extremely humbling that this accolade has come directly from our patients and is something we are very proud to have achieved.

“It demonstrates that the hard work and commitment of all our dedicated staff involved in delivering cancer services is recognised and appreciated by our patients and their faith in us.

“We have been ranked within the top five of this survey for the past three years running, and the challenge now is to ensure that we remain within this position in the future. We are never complacent and we know that there are areas we can improve on to make an even bigger difference to our patients and their experience of dealing with cancer.”
