The Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund

We are a local cancer support charity that works to improve the care of patients who are receiving treatment within Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. From financial grants to sky TV we provide whatever is needed to make the long hospital stay more bearable.

Our LINC clinical psychology team provides help to patients and their families – this support may go on for some time after the patient has left hospital – helping them to readjust to the outside world.

LINC is here to help from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment and for as long as required.

In 2016 our main emphasis is on upgrading the en-suite showers on Rendcomb Ward side rooms. We have also been asked to fund a clinical research nurse. Many of our patients are entered in clinical trials. This happens throughout the country- the results being collated at a central point so the clinicians can assess how effective the treatment has been and what dose of chemotherapy is most effective.
