Northern Centre for Cancer Care

Haematology trials

The award-winning Northern Centre for Cancer Care (NCCC) is based at the Freeman Hospital. It is the largest centre of its kind in the North of England providing excellent inpatient and outpatient facilities. It houses the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre (SBRCU), which is a dedicated early phase cancer trials unit.

In our Haematology department we have developed a strong background in clinical research. Many of our members sit on national working groups and trial monitoring groups and several of our consultants are leading on national studies.

We currently undertake all phases of clinical trials from early phase 1 studies to late phase 3 studies including very complex CAR-T cell studies and first-in-man studies. Our team is accredited as a Myeloma UK and IMPACT stem cell transplant trial centre. We always look out to participate in novel studies with the aim to bring new therapies to the patients in our region and ultimately improve patient care and clinical practice.

If you consider participating in one study we recommend that you discuss the trial with your local haematologist. In case you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact relevant secretarial staff.

The portfolio shows open studies at NCCC.  We recommend that you use provided weblinks from Cancer Research UK, Lymphoma action and Impact to get a better understanding about the studies' aim and its inclusion and exclusion criteria
