Clinical trials in Head & Neck 

Head and Neck: Who are we?

Welcome to the Head and Neck research and clinical trials at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust. We are a large and diverse department, and include the following specialities:

  • Maxillofacial

  • Ear, Nose & Throat

  • Head & Neck

  • Thyroid Cancer

  • Audiology

  • Ophthalmology

Clinical trials:

Since 2012 we have become increasingly committed to offering our patients the opportunity to take part in a variety of national and local clinical trials. We believe patients deserve to have the option to take part in clinical trials should they wish to do so, and we will continue to expand the number of trials that we are able to offer in the future. 127 patients that came to our department were able to participate in clinical trials during 2012, 173 during 2013 and 112 during 2014.

Your involvement:

The following page gives information about clinical trials that we are currently able to offer to those who are eligible to take part. New trials will be added as they are opened here, so please check for regular updates.

If you have been involved in clinical trials here at PHT, we would love to hear from you about your experience, and value any constructive feedback you can offer to help us improve our delivery of research.

If you would like to be involved in the future development and delivery of clinical trials in this department, please contact us with your details. This could include taking part in surveys helping to identify the issues that matter most to our patients, joining a research team to develop a study, or reviewing documents written for patients.

Research Success:

Head and Neck 5000: A massive thank you to 232 patients in Portsmouth with cancer of the head or neck who took part in the Head and Neck 5000 study!! The four month and twelve month questionnaires will continue to be sent to you, finishing at the end of 2015, after which the results will start to be collated. If you took part and would like to know results, please contact us with your details.

Once again, thank you for taking part and providing valuable information about the care of people with head and neck cancer.
