Congratulations to Mark Lacey and the Central Coast Local Health District for winning the Innovation in Cancer Clinical Trials Award. 

In 2015, Central Coast Local Health District (LHD)  had a three fold increase in the recruitment of cancer patients to interventional cancer clinical trials.

 

They increased the ratio of new trial participants to cancer incident cases, a reflection of improved clinical trials service provision for cancer patients located in Central Coast LHD.

Central Coast LHD have opened a new trial unit and have commenced recruitment to radiation Oncology clinical trials, in addition to their existing Haematology and medical Oncology clinical trial units.
