Early detection cancer trial

Together, we're making a difference

Using mobile clinical trials units, we have been able to recruit at speed and scale from some of the hardest to reach postcodes in the country for the NHS-Galleri project. We receive excellent participant feedback, with 97% rating their experience as good or excellent.

The project trials the Galleri™ blood test which was developed by US firm GRAIL. To take part in trialling, participants are required to attend the mobile units for three blood draws over three years. The test can be used to detect more than 50 types of cancer - including those that are hard to detect, such as pancreatic, head and neck, ovarian and oesophageal cancers.

NHS-Galleri trial is a collaboration with the NHS, GRAIL, The Cancer Research UK and King’s College London Cancer Prevention Trials Unit.
