What does a Cure Leukaemia Research Nurse do?
There are two sides to being a Cure Leukaemia-funded Research Nurse.
The first is ‘recruiting’ patients and looking for patients to go on the trial programmes.
And the second part is looking to see which trial is better for the patient and which trial can offer a better result.
It’s important to make sure that the trial will be of a benefit to the patients, and will help to make them better and to make sure that the patients won’t feel too ill from the trial therapy.
Without Cure Leukaemia Research Nurses, clinical trials just do not happen.

Adrian was diagnosed with AML in 2019, and was then treated at Birmingham’s Centre for Clinical Haematology.
“I think the world of them, honestly. Charlie and Hayley from Cure Leukaemia are amazing, but every single nurse and doctor, just everybody in the whole hospital are amazing honestly.”
