Our trust is committed to delivering high quality research, please click on the link below for the trusts local Research & Development information.
Research is at the heart of advances in treatment and care.
The goal of research is often to find out if a new treatment, is safe, and is acceptable to the people who are involved in it.
Research also aims to improve the quality of life for people living with chronic or terminal illnesses, ensuring that people can live the best quality life for the longest amount of time possible.
Without willing volunteers, research studies will not be able to take place, and these advances in care and treatment will become harder to discover.
At any stage during your cancer journey, you may be approached about taking part in research. You will be provided with a study specific patient information sheet and plenty of time to ask questions before you make a decision.
