Oracle Cancer Trust is the UK’s leading national charity dedicated to Head and Neck cancer. Oracle work to advance the fight against Head and Neck cancer and ensure that the medical community, patients and families get as much support as possible to be beat the odds with regards to this disease.

Together, North West Cancer Research and Oracle Cancer Trust are collaborating to jointly fund a Head and Neck Cancer research project. This will focus on the need for better data to highlight the inequalities in Head and Neck cancers.
