Cancer research

If you have cancer you may be eligible to take part in one of our research trials.

You could take part if you have:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Gastro-oesophageal cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Haematological cancer

If you choose to take part in one of our research trials, it may involve completing a questionnaire, blood tests or some other tests.

If the research involves additional visits to the hospital then you will normally be paid for your travel costs.

We’re always looking at the effectiveness of treatments and new treatments which could be used to help people with cancer.

We want to help you understand more about your condition and your treatments. Being involved in research can really help with this and help others with similar conditions in the future.

To find out more about clinical trials you can also visit the Cancer Research UK website where you can learn about types of trials, what you might expect from being involved and also search for potential trials that you might be eligible for http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/find-a-clinical-trial
