King’s Mill Hospital is saving a Kirkby, UK man who is battling with prostate cancer. An acute general district hospital serving the population of north Nottinghamshire and parts of Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, it is managed by the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
King’s Mill is participating in the STAMPEDE clinical trial. Its Research and Innovation Department manages the initiative. Peter French, 65 has joined the study. Apparently, it is going well, and he is “expected to exceed his prognosis” as he continues his treatment.
Alison Steel, Head of Research and Innovation at the hospital noted “We are in a great position to be able to offer patients these clinical trials at King’s Mill Hospital and Newark Hospital. Clinical trials are so important for the future of medicine; we have patients willing to give their time and energy to help future patients. Without research and innovation, healthcare would not move forward, and our research staff and patients are a credit to the NHS.”
