My Cancer Treatment

Brought to you by the National Peer Review Programme

My Cancer Treatment provides up to date and accessible information about NHS cancer services in England, for most of the common cancers and some of the rarer cancers.

The reports available provide information to help you decide where to go for your cancer treatment including:

  • How well the team compares to all the other teams in the country providing similar services

  • Identification of any serious concerns or immediate risks, highlighting where they has been any compromise to quality of patient care, or risk to patient or staff safety

  • If the cancer service has all relevant members of the tem, including a clinical nurse specialist

  • Percentage of patients seen by the hospital, that meet the cancer waiting times standards, set by the Department of Health

  • Survey results about how other cancer patients rate their experiences of care in that hospital

My Cancer Treatment is proudly supported by Macmillan Cancer support and we are working together to make My Cancer Treatment accessible, easy to use and helpful for people affected by cancer.

Giving you the knowledge to decide where you would like to be treated

Free mobile phones for all cancer patients

Simpal will provide free calls/text/data and mobiles where appropriate, to those affected by cancer aiming to help minimise some of the isolation, loneliness and financial pressure that many people affected by cancer face. This service offers 6months of free calls and texts to help when spare money may be tight. It also is available for people around the patient, not only the patient.


This service is absolutely free and available wherever you are in the UK.  Please get in touch if you or anyone you know may benefit from their work – there is an online application form to complete or someone can complete the application form over the telephone.    Tel: 0800 5677890. You can also apply on someone else’s behalf, for example if you are a carer or health care professional.
