Cancer research

About our research

Our clinical trials team works closely with the oncology and haematology medical teams to recruit patients to our trials and to ensure patients are monitored closely throughout.

We have a large portfolio of phase II and III trials that are split into teams for specific tumour groups. We also have a team dedicated to early phase trials and we run weekly early phase clinics in the clinical research facility. We attract commercial and non-commercial trials, ranging from interventional drug or radiotherapy trials to observational studies.

Every year, more than 1500 of our cancer patients decide to take part in clinical trials.
