NHS Improving Quality pioneering ‘buddy’ scheme

NHS Improving Quality has launched a pioneering “buddy” scheme to support some NHS trusts in England to improve cancer patients’ experience of care.

The scheme will see trusts that were most highly rated in the recent cancer patient experience survey provide support to trusts where patient feedback identified room for improvement. The aim of the scheme is to spread and accelerate innovative practice in order to reduce national variation in cancer patients’ experiences of care.
