Being diagnosed with a blood cancer is a traumatic time for patients and their families. We actively seek to support patients during this difficult time, providing access to key information about specific cancers, helping them contact relevant support groups, and facilitating their recruitment to key clinical trials. We also link up with specific charities (in particular Cure Leukaemia and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) for fundraising and public engagement events.
Want to know more about blood cancers ?
Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research has online information about blood cancers, information about clinical trials, and personal stories about patient affected by blood cancer.
Interested in joining a support group ?
The Haematology Support Group is a patient-led support group for people diagnosed with blood cancer in the West Midlands, which organises meetings with relevant and interesting guest speakers, social events, and day trips. If you are interested in joining, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 07766 875 111. In addition, there is a monthly Newsletter (contact Lisa : email@example.com) which includes contributions from Patients, Carers, information and links which may be of interest to the group, details of meetings, social events and outings.

If you would like to find out about clinical trials you might be eligible to take part in, please contact the Central England Haemato-oncology Research Initiative, a regional network aiming specifically to promote efficient patient recruitment to clinical trials.
