Our specialist myeloma team holds four myeloma outpatient clinics per week, seeing over 300 patients every month.
As well as consultants, research fellows and clinical nurse specialists, our myeloma multi-disciplinary team includes clinical oncologists, pain specialists, palliative care clinical nurse specialists, spinal surgeons and musculo-skeletal radiologists. Our clinical nurse specialists meet with patients at their first consultation and remain their key worker throughout their myeloma journey.
We run a large and active clinical trial programme, from phase I first-in-man studies to randomized phase III trials. Our patients have the opportunity to receive novel treatments, including state-of-the-art protocols. Around 50% of patients receiving treatment for myeloma at UCLH are on clinical trials, and they are supported by a myeloma research nurse and two myeloma clinical trials practitioners. We also run a survivorship study for patients who have completed their chemotherapy.
We perform around 70 stem cell transplants annually; the majority are autologous stem cell transplants.
