ABC UK Surveys

ABC UK Covid 19 Patient Survey June 2020

Action Bladder Cancer UK (ABC UK) conducted a survey (during May/early June 2020) to find out how the current Covid-19 pandemic has affected the treatment, monitoring and well-being of people with bladder cancer.  The survey was developed and reviewed by the ABC UK team working, as always, with bladder cancer patients and clinicians. 

We hope to use the results of the survey to better understand the impact of Covid-19 for people with bladder cancer and what the longer-term implications may be.  It will also prove valuable in helping ABC UK ensure it provides the right support and information for patients and inform how we can best support the NHS, and other organisations, to provide safe services for people with bladder cancer. 

We are very grateful to the bladder cancer patients who took the time to complete this survey.  


You can read the interim summary results here Covid - 19 Survey Summary Results .pdf  

The survey was kept running after the interim results above, and we are looking in more detail at the full survey results.

We shall be running a follow up survey shortly. 


This was the first of a regular series of ABC UK surveys - amongst both patients and health professionals - as part of our important work in learning more about the experience and needs of those with bladder cancer, helping to support health professionals and improving outcomes for patients.  

If you are interested in our survey work - whether as a patient or health professional or researcher, and would like to register interest in future ABC UK surveys, please email us on (please put Surveys in the email title).

Thank you...
