Clinical trials are essential to aid faster development of new, safe, effective treatments and drive the development of clinical services.
As a network, we are working hard to ensure that patients in the network have equitable access to clinical trials and increasing recruitment to, and awareness of, radiotherapy clinical trials are key priorities.
Our network-wide clinical trials group is attended by Consultant Clinical Oncologists, Therapeutic Radiographers, Dosimetrists, Physicists, Clinical Trials Officers and local Clinical Research Network representatives. We have been working with our stakeholders to promote awareness, understanding and collaboration in the region, with the aim to broaden the breadth and depth of the research portfolio for all patients having radiotherapy as part of their cancer treatment.
The graph below shows the number of patients recruited into radiotherapy clinical trials over time in the network. A recent increase in recruitment can be seen. Recovery from a decline in recruitment due to Covid can be observed.
So far we have:
We look forward to continuing the promotion of advanced and innovative radiotherapy for all cancer patients requiring radiotherapy in the region.
