For Patients

Here you will find details of cancer trials that are open and currently enrolling patients.

You will see that that each trial lists the criteria that patients need to meet to be able to participate. For instance, a trial might be for a certain age group, a particular type or stage of cancer, or for patients with specific previous treatments.

If you would like to consider taking part in a trial just ask your oncologist or GP.

He / she can assess whether taking part in a trial is suitable for you and is in your best interests.

Alternatively you can contact one of the Cancer Trials Research Units where trials are carried out and ask for the Co-ordinator or a Research Nurse and they would be happy to help you.
