Research

Weston Park Cancer Charity supports high quality research with the potential to improve the lives of cancer patients both now and in the future.
  • We will support high quality, patient- focussed research conducted by the Cancer Clinical Trials Centre at Weston Park Hospital and related research groups within the city that helps secure continued nationally-esteemed ‘Experimental Cancer Medical Centre’ (ECMC) status and improves the quality and quantity of cancer research necessary to compete for CR-UK Cancer Centre status in the future. This will help attract the best medical staff to work in Sheffield and give patients the opportunity to participate in ground-breaking clinical trials.
  • We will invest in research and new technologies that can improve the effectiveness, tolerability and/or cost effectiveness of treatment.
  • We will test new models of care and patient support that can enable people with cancer to live better lives and retain or regain their independence.
