The Academic Oncology and Haematology Unit at Castle Hill Hospital has been established for over 20 years.

In line with the NHS Research and Innovation Strategy, our aim is to secure ‘top 5’ national status with our Academic Oncology Research Unit as measured by CRN data.

With our proactive infrastructure and dedicated team of Principal Investigators, Research Nurses and Clinical Trial Assistants, we strive to deliver high quality, patient-focused care.

With an experienced team led by Senior Research Nurse Paula O’Reilly, we are able to cover a wide range of cutting edge, complex drug trials that are helping to drive the development of novel cancer drugs treatments and improve patient treatment choices.

The unit aims to maintain a broad portfolio of studies allowing every patient the opportunity to participate in research should they wish to do so. The unit has highly established links with the Hull Medical School and the new Hull Health Trials Unit at the University of Hull and we actively develop a wide portfolio of studies that are relevant to the local population.

Our current portfolio includes

  • Brain
