Welcome to the Hope Clinical Trials Facility. 

Our mission is to deliver excellence in cancer research. 

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

The Hope Clinical Trials Facility is a dedicated area for patients participating in clinical research studies, particularly those at the early stages of development. 

Opened by Martin Johnson in May 2012, the Facility has been funded by the local Leicestershire and Rutland cancer charity Hope Against Cancer, the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and the National Institute for Health Research.

Positive Experience:

Many patients find that being part of clinical research is a very positive experience. The quotes below are from some of our patients regarding why they decided to take part in clinical research.

“To help others and give myself a better chance”

“I entered it to help myself plus hopefully help others in the future”

“Amazing cutting edge care from talented people. Care the NHS should be proud of - all the staff are first class, I can’t praise them enough”
