This page details some resources available to patients in Wales.
A clinical trial compares the effects of one treatment with another. It may involve patients, healthy people, or both. Trials aim to find out if a new treatment or procedure is safe, is better than the current treatment or helps you feel better. A full list of all clinical trials available to cancer patients in the UK can be found on the Cancer Research UK website. Click here to access the list.
