Around 1 in 5 people diagnosed with cancer in the UK take part in a clinical trial.
A study to develop a quality of life questionnaire for people living beyond cancer
Please note - this trial is no longer recruiting patients. We hope to add results when they are available.
Researchers want to develop a questionnaire for people living beyond cancer (cancer survivors) to find out more about their quality of life after treatment.
