Academic Oncology and Haematology Trials Unit
We are a large team based in the Queen’s Centre for Oncology and Haematology at Castle Hill Hospital. Our team is made up of registered nurses and clinical trials assistants.
We work very closely with an abundance of healthcare professionals from professors, doctors, radiographers to physicists, to name but a few, in order to deliver clinical trials.
The team undertakes every aspect of setting up and running Phase II, III and IV clinical trials aimed at a wide variety of cancer sites and blood cancers.
We look at everything from early detection, to new chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments or regimens and novel immunotherapy drugs.
We work closely with pharmaceutical companies from across the globe to deliver and maintain the safety for our patients who decide to take part in a clinical trial.
Our patients are our ultimate priority and we pride ourselves on the relationships that we build with our patients and their families and carers.
In partnership with the University of Hull, the trust is in the process of establishing the Hull Health Trials Unit to allow access for all in Hull and the East Riding.
We have strong links with the University of Hull and the Hull York Medical School as well as the local NHS Innovation Hub, Northern and Yorkshire and the Humber Health Sciences Alliances.
Using these important links, the trust is working towards achieving “top 5” status in England for Academic Oncology Research.
