Background: People affected by cancer (PABC) continue to experience a range of unmet psychosocial needs. Our research indicates that the rural setting exacerbates those needs as a result of geographic and service-delivery challenges.

Methods: Our research draws on qualitative data from rural Victoria, Australia (n=19) and the rural English county of Lincolnshire (n=20). In-depth interviews were digitally recorded and transcribed verbatim. All data were collated and analysed thematically. Participants were PABC at various stages of the cancer trajectory and included carers of those in receipt of palliative care
