Other organisations

Opportunities to work with other organisations and researchers:

  • Are you living with cancer and claiming benefits? Revealing Reality are conducting research for Macmillan Cancer Support to understand your experiences of the benefits system. They're looking for people who have claimed UC, ESA or PIP for cancer recently. Find out more about the study here or contact [email protected] if you're interested or have any questions.
  • If you are a partner of someone who has had cancer please consider taking part in this University of Liverpool study, which aims to better understand worry about a partner's cancer returning. The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes and will ask questions about how you think and feel about your partner’s cancer returning and also about your own experiences of anxiety, low mood and worry. The responses that you do give will remain confidential. For more information, contact Louise O'Rourke on [email protected]. Further details can be found in the direct link to the study: https://livpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1GMAarFwMK7Wi2x As a thank you for taking the time to complete the research study, you will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to be eligible to win one of six £25 high street vouchers.
  • Have you been for cervical screening (smear/pap test) in the last year and been told you have HPV (human papillomavirus)? Researchers at UCL would like to talk to women about the impact of HPV on sex and relationships. If you are interested, or for more information, please contact Kirsty Bennett by email: [email protected] or telephone 0207 679 1736.
  • Nicolette Gregg, MSc student from Royal Holloway University of London, is running a research study looking at how self-compassion, compassion from others, shame, and self-criticism can help or hinder routine cervical screening attendance for women who have been sexually assaulted. The research involves attending a focus group of 4-8 women in June 2019. This project aims to develop theory and practice to help women attend cervical screenings in a safe and compassionate way. If interested in this study, please contact [email protected], who will provide the information sheet for further details. 
  • Researchers at Loughborough University want to learn more about the recovery process of women who have been treated for cervical cancer. They are interested in identifying how factors such as physical activity may contribute to an enhanced recovery. They hope the results of the study can be used to inform healthcare professionals and other women who have had treatment for cervical cancer which types of physical activity are enjoyable and most effective for aiding recovery and increasing quality of life in the month and years after treatment. For more information, please contact Ms. Nessa Millet by email ([email protected]) or mobile (07551460347).
  • The Royal Marsden Hospital with the Institute of Cancer Research are conducting a trial looking at whether Magnetic Resonance guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MRgHIFU) is useful for the treatment of symptoms of women's cancers that have come back (e.g. pain, bleeding) in cases where other treatments (e.g. radiotherapy and chemotherapy) have not worked. Prof Nandita deSouza's team is recruiting eligible patients for the trial which is taking place at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, London. Please click here for more information or email the MRgHIFU Clinical Research Fellow Dr Georgios Imseeh ([email protected]) or call 020 8661 3119.
  • Are you 60-70 years old? Have you had an abnormal screening result in the last few years? Researchers at UCL want to explore attitudes to extending cervical screening post-64 years and are looking for women who are interested in helping design their research. If you are interested please contact Dr Laura Marlow by email: [email protected] or telephone 020 7679 1798. 
  • Clatterbridge Cancer Centre with the University of Liverpool are conducting a trial called COMICE looking at whether olaparib and cediranib can improve treatment for cancer of the cervix that has spread or come back. The trial will take place in participating hospitals around the UK and are planning to recruit eligible patients until November 2019. In this trial, some people have cediranib and olaparib and some have dummy drugs (placebo). Please click here for more information or email COMICE Trial Coordinator Karen Scott [email protected].
  • Help design a study to improve healthcare for women with gynaecological symptoms. This is a study for women aged 18 to 64 who have had any bleeding between periods or after sex in the past 2 years. Contact Alex Castanon on [email protected] to find out more.
  • Share your experience of the NHS cervical screening programme: UCL are collecting your experiences to find out how the programme can offer more support.
