Famous faces and over 100 key figures from across the region came together in Birmingham to launch Cure Leukaemia’s 2017 £1 Million appeal to fund the expansion of the globally significant Centre for Clinical Haematology (CCH) based at the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, a founder member of Birmingham Health Partners
The centre, launched in 2006, has for the last decade delivered world-leading research that matters both to patients and industry as well as countless examples of life-saving treatment to those in their care. This notable impact was highlighted at the launch event by George Freeman MP, Chair of the Prime Minster’s Policy Board and former Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Life Sciences
The transformative expansion of the centre will double the footprint of the existing facility and increase capacity for consultations. There will be space to deliver nationally significant clinical trials programmes alongside the capability to administer stem cell transplants as an outpatient. Birmingham is one of the first centres in this field to offer this facility.
