'Patient Trial Advocate' Pilot Scheme - South East Scotland - Make 2nds Count

Make 2nds Count Trial Patient Advocate Service
Finding the right information about available clinical trials and understanding the associated complex information is a challenge for all secondary breast cancer patients. And so we have funded a trial of a new service in the NHS to raise awareness of clinical research and trials amongst patients with secondary breast cancer.

The Make 2nd Count Secondary Breast Cancer Patient Trials Advocate (PTA) is a senior research nurse with experience in secondary breast cancer and clinical trials.

The role is initially being piloted in the South East of Scotland (Lothian, Borders, Livingston, Fife and Dumfries & Galloway), to help secondary breast cancer patients potentially find a clinical trial and to support them through the clinical trial process. Assuming the pilot is successful, we then hope to expand the service beyond the South East of Scotland before then end of 2021.
