ABC UK Surveys

ABC UK Covid 19 Patient Survey 2021

 ABC UK ran a first Covid 19 Patient Survey in May/June 2020, to try to gauge the impact of Covid-19 on bladder cancer patients and the effects at that time on testing, treatment, monitoring and general well-being. 

We are now running a second survey to monitor how the pandemic may continue to affect bladder cancer patients and to help us learn 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.

The anonymous survey is open to all UK bladder cancer patients over 18.  ABC UK is pleased to be working with TOUR/Kings College London.  If you are a bladder cancer patient, over 18, and resident in the UK, you are eligible to take this survey.

This survey has now closed.  ABC UK will be publishing the results.   

 Please contact Action Bladder Cancer UK on 0300 302 0085 or if you would like more information. 

Thank you for helping us with this important work.


ABC UK COVID-19 Patient Survey 2020 

Action Bladder Cancer UK (ABC UK) conducted a survey (during May/early June 2020) to find out how the Covid-19 pandemic  was affecting 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 are very grateful to the bladder cancer patients who took the time to complete this survey.

These COVID-19 surveys are 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).
