Cancer Research UK – Information on Covid-19 and cancer

With guidance from the Government regularly evolving, people may be unsure how to protect themselves and their community as best they can. This is especially true for those living with cancer who, alongside their friends and families, will want to take extra care to reduce their risks.

Cancer Research UK have created a web guide containing the latest information and important links so people can keep up to date with caring for themselves and others. This guide is available via their website.

They are committed to supporting the national effort to tackle Covid-19 and are already using their resources and expertise to help.

They have established the Francis Crick Institute as a Covid-19 testing hub for London and are liaising with national co-ordinators to explore how their other institutes can also help.

They are releasing their funded clinical research workforce to return to NHS front line service delivery.

They are developing a targeted research call.

They are making their research centres, wider infrastructure and lab kit available where they are of use.

Like many charities, Cancer Research UK have seen donations drop significantly during the current health crisis and would therefore be grateful for donations to help them continue their invaluable work. This can be done via their website or on 0300 123 1022.
