Why Do We Need To Expand?

Around 5,000 people in Leicestershire are diagnosed with cancer each year. Because of life-saving research, more people are now surviving cancer.

 

Evidence suggests that having an active research centre in a hospital providing cancer treatment, not only improves the standard of care for patients taking part in clinical trials, it also benefits those patients not currently eligible for a trial who are treated in the same hospital.

 

At the moment the Hope Clinical Trials Facility has over 5,000 patient attendances a year. People taking part in clinical trials can benefit from access to the latest medicines and treatments, the care of the Hope Research Nurse, and are treated in a warm and friendly environment.

Help Us To:

• Offer more treatment beds

• Provide more treatment rooms

• Increase the number of clinical trials taking place

• Install the latest cancer research equipment.

 

This development will double the size of the facility, include state-of-the-art equipment while keeping the warm and caring atmosphere our patients value.

 

How can you help?

 

Anything from a cake sale to a sponsored challenge will be massively appreciated to help us raise money and awareness of our appeal. Check out our fundraising page for more information.

About Hope

Hope Against Cancer is Leicestershire and Rutland’s local cancer research charity. We were established in 2003 to bring cutting-edge research to our area and make world-class clinical trials available to local people.

 

Our vision is to work for a future where more local people survive cancer. We do this by funding innovative research, which in turn leads to improved treatments and better outcomes for people with cancer. We work in partnership with local universities and hospitals, funding pioneering research to ensure that Leicestershire is hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment.

 

The Hope Clinical Trials Facility is a dedicated area in the Leicester Royal Infirmary for patients taking part in clinical research studies.
