This service is for support and advice in understanding and potentially accessing clinical trials. The service cannot advise on your current medical treatments - if you require medical advice please contact your Oncology team or Breast Cancer Nurse.
This is a new pilot service so your feedback is important to help us improve the service so that it can be rolled out in other areas of the UK.
The Patient Trials Advocate (PTA) nurse will access clinical trial information from available databases.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure the most up to date information is provided to patients participating in the service, the PTA is reliant on data from third party sources, the updating of which is outside of the PTA or Make 2nds Count's control.
We do not endorse any individual trial or drug, the service is based on information and access only.
Patient Trial Advocate
The Patient Trial Advocate is a senior nurse selected and employed by the NHS. The role of PTA is funded by Make 2nds Count.
Makes 2nds Count will store the data collected in the referral form. We will share it with the relevant PTA where it will also be stored on an NHS database to allow them to assist patients in the search for a clinical trial.
In accordance with EU and UK’s General Data Protection Regulation, all information will be stored for a maximum of 12 months then deleted.
Make 2nds Count will not have access to any patients medical data.
In the future Make 2nds Count may contact you for feedback about the Clinical Trials Support Service. This is to help evaluate and improve the service so that it can be rolled out in other areas of the UK.
