We were the first centre in the UK to offer photopheresis treatment.
Photopheresis is also known as extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP). It involves separating the white blood cells from your blood by a machine. They are then treated with a light-activated drug and ultraviolet light.
We're one of the largest and busiest ECP nurse-led centres in the world.
We use ECP to treat:
- cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (a rare type of lymphoma that affects the skin)
- sezary syndrome (a form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma)
- short-term and long-term graft versus host disease (GvHD) after a stem cell transplant
Research and clinical trials
Research is vital to improving the care that you receive. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
You can email [email protected] for more information.
