Let us know your views on men's needs during cancer referral

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is updating its guidelines for suspected cancer referral. We want to make sure that NICE’s updated guidelines for GPs meet the needs of men, which is why we've launched this survey to collect men's views and experiences. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes, and closes on 30 November 2014. This includes men with prostate cancer and those who have had tests for prostate cancer but haven't been diagnosed, as well as men who haven't been tested for prostate cancer.

Location: Your home

Please fill in the survey by 30 November
