What do you do on a daily basis?

"Ordinarily I manage and support the recruitment to and delivery of both Commercial and Non-Commercial Studies within the area of Oncology. I provide support to patients and their families through their treatment journey. During the past twelve months it’s been a new experience as we have supported the delivery of Urgent Public Health Studies during the COVID 19 pandemic."

Why do you enjoy your job?

"I love my job because, Research is about making a difference, it’s about being able to offer patients the opportunity of receiving novel/innovative treatments that they wouldn’t have access to on the NHS. 

Research facilitates the development of medical and scientific knowledge so that we can improve diagnosis, treatment and care for our current patients and patients of the future. 

I feel very privileged to be able to support patients and their families through their treatment journey."

What’s it like to be a part of the research team at UHNM?

"I feel privileged to be a part of the Research Team at the UHNM. It is great to work with such a diverse, knowledgeable and skilled workforce who contribute every day to help improve the lives of so many people, and to be a part of that is great."

How important are clinical trials?

"Clinical trials are important because they help to change current standard of care practice. 

Randomised Control Trials are astute, reliable and replicable and provide clinicians with the evidence they need to improve and change practice within all disease specialities.  Without them we would not be able to make the advancements in care that’s needed."
