A YouGov survey, commissioned by Macmillan Cancer Support, of 2,217 adults living with cancer found 18,000 patients have their medical files lost every year in hospitals.
Other findings of the poll included:
- Just over one in five patients had felt patronised by hospital staff
- 15 percent of patients said they had felt humiliated by the nurses treating them at some point
- 14 percent of cancer patients who requested help to go to the toilet said they were forced to wait at least 30 minutes for assistance
