As the leading centre for non-surgical cancer care in Scotland, the Beatson serves around 50 per cent of the Scottish population. It is the UK’s busiest cancer care centre, which sees more than 8,000 new patients every year and delivers more than 25,000 courses of chemotherapy and 6,500 courses of radiotherapy.
Beatson Cancer Charity is determined to beat cancer, and by fighting on all fronts it supports and enhances the treatment, care and wellbeing of those affected by cancer. Funds raised will help provide a comprehensive range of high quality patient and family support services and fund specialist staff posts including specialist nursing, radiography and research based staff as well as service developments, enhanced medical equipment and innovative research and education.
Trespass has been a supporter of Beatson for a number of years and now we want to help spread their message.
Beating cancer means fighting on all fronts.
Beatson Cancer Charity is committed to securing significant funding to support and enhance the treatment, care and wellbeing of anyone affected by cancer, whether they’re a current or former patient, a family member or carer, and in particular those who are Beatson patients in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
The charity provides a range of patient and family support services and facilities including patient wellbeing and complementary therapy services delivered throughout the cancer centre and through our unique and award-winning wellbeing centre as well as in other locations and related facilities. It also funds many specialist posts including specialist nursing, radiography, physics and research-based staff as well as enhanced medical equipment, innovative service developments, unique research projects and developmental staff training.
Supporting Beatson Cancer Charity offers the wider community an opportunity to play a vital role in supporting cancer patients and their families, both now and in the future by contributing to the fight against cancer in the broadest possible sense.
