Opportunities to support our work

Your insight as a healthcare professional ensures that we create and provide services that are clinically accurate and meaningful to the blood cancer community. On this page, we provide voluntary opportunities for you to support our work.


I was happy to help as I think it is important for patients to be given up to date information expressed in way that is easily comprehensible, and I felt that I could make a worthwhile contribution towards that goal.

In my practice (lead nurse across 4 hospital sites) I only use Blood Cancer UK leaflets. Therefore, I have read each and every leaflet. Becoming an expert reader allows me to participate in the content of these leaflets and I can feel more informed about what I am handing to patients. I have always enjoyed this sort of task but my main focus is to have quality products for the patients and their families I see every day."

Current opportunities


We'd like to produce a small range of blood cancer information in other languages. The languages will be Polish, Romanian, Punjabi, Urdu and Welsh. This reflects the languages most commonly used in the UK by people whose preferred language is not English.

We will focus on videos (spoken word) which will be much more accessible than written translations.

How you can help

We need healthcare professionals who speak these languages to help translate blood cancer information and feature in the videos.

Our survey of people with blood cancer indicates that 58% of those with blood cancer are not aware of any support potentially available to them when diagnosed. We’d like to work with healthcare professionals to improve access to support services at diagnosis.

How you can help

We want to work with healthcare professionals to design, prototype, and test the new products. In addition to participating in interviews or focus groups.

Pilot hospital recruitment

This year we'd like to partner with a hospitals to shape the development of our offer, design something that works for today's clinical environment, and most importantly trial this in clinics and see real-time benefits to patients.

Interested in this project

Our blood cancer information is written with expert medical professionals and people affected by blood cancer, to make sure it's medically accurate, clear and trustworthy.

This year we're recruiting healthcare professionals to review information about:

  • infection and sepsis
  • chronic myeloid leukaemia
  • diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
  • follicular lymphoma
  • acute lymphoblastic leukaemia

Interested in supporting these reviews?

If you specialise in any of the areas above and would like to help please register your interest and state which project you'd like to like to get involved with.

Our online course is designed for new starters on a haematology ward, or healthcare professionals looking to improve their knowledge of basic haemato-oncological concepts to care for blood cancer patients.

Nurses created the course, which undergoes yearly reviews to ensure it remains clinically accurate.

  1. Understanding blood cancer
  2. Types of blood cancer
  3. Diagnostic tests
  4. Chemotherapy
  5. Stem cell transplants
  6. CAR-T therapy
  7. Managing other treatment modalities
  8. Managing common complications and haematological emergencies

The review can be done at your own pace but needs to be completed by 29th April 2024.

If you specialise in any of the areas above and would like to help please register your interest and state which project you'd like to like to get involved with.


Because it is so important for patients to get concise and correct information, particularly at the time of diagnosis and regarding specific new treatments. If there weren’t good patient specific resources available from medical charities then patients often become overwhelmed by the amount of information that is not targeted to them on the internet."

I know how much patients rely on Blood Cancer UK materials around the time of diagnosis and so I think it’s very worthwhile to make sure they are as accurate and informative as possible. I’ve always used these materials with my patients so it’s nice to be involved with preparing them as well."
