Q
Asked on: 23 January 2020
Department of Health and Social Care
Cancer: Health Services
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the (1) efficacy of, and (2) access to, treatment to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors, in particular those measures which combat long-term physical or psychological symptoms arising from cancer treatments.
Answered on: 05 February 2020

Work is being undertaken to develop a world-leading quality-of-life metric, with pilot tests being carried out in four Cancer Alliances. For the first time, this will allow us to assess the quality of survival alongside survival rates, so that we can identify where additional support is needed.
