Following the success of the Fund’s Patient Days in 2009 and 2010, the programme has been extended to several Patient Days in 2011.

There were well attended Patient Days in Cardiff, Swansea and Carmarthen in March this year and there are more to come: at The Lowry Centre, Salford Quays, Manchester M50 3AZ on Wednesday 15 June, in Glasgow on Wednesday 5 October and in the South East on Wednesday 16 November.

Would you like to learn more about kidney cancer and treatments for kidney cancer direct from the experts?

Are you interested in meeting other kidney cancer patients with or those who have received treatment and recovered?

Then come and be part of our Patient Day at The Lowry Centre, Salford Quays, Manchester.


Professor Robert Hawkins, Cancer Research UK Professor and Director of Medical Oncology at the University of Manchester and the Christie Hospital NHS Trust, will chair the Day.

He will also be giving the plenary presentation on his very exciting research with high dose interleukin-2 (HD IL-2), sequential treatment and new treatment options for kidney cancer.

The day also includes presentations on kidney cancer surgery, radiotherapy, the work of the clinical nurse specialist, patient support and the James Whale Fund nurse training programme. In the afternoon, there will be an interactive Question and Answer session with some of the UK’s leading kidney cancer specialists.
