Every donation received will help make a difference in the fight against melanoma

Thank you


In addition to our existing projects, the Melanoma Helpline 0808 801 0777, Patient Decision Aid, National Melanoma Database, Research Programmes, National Clinical Guidelines, Melanoma Meetings and Raising Awareness:


Melanoma Focus will be launching the new TrialFinder database     in 2020

Our new online database will give comprehensive information about NHS-funded and commercial clinical trials for melanoma.

There will be two versions, one for patients and their carers and a second specifically for healthcare professionals for use by GPs and clinicians needing to advise their patients about the choice and location of trials.

Cancer clinicians and patient groups believe that all melanoma patients should be offered the opportunity to take part in a suitable clinical trial where possible.  Having a complete and, above all, reliable source of information will greatly improve the ability of patients and their doctors to discuss the feasibility of taking part in trials. In time this will increase patient participation in melanoma trials and help both melanoma research and patient outcomes.


Your donations will help us fund the Melanoma TrialFinder, new and innovative research and our other melanoma projects. Thank you.
