National survey shows decline in positive experience for brain tumour patients

The survey is designed to monitor national progress on cancer care, provide information that could be used to drive local quality improvements, assist multi-disciplinary teams, commissioners, and NHS Trusts in improving patient services, and inform the work of charities supporting cancer patients.
