Leeds Cancer Centre diagnoses and treats cancer for the people of Leeds and the Yorkshire region. We are one of the largest cancer centres in the UK and provide some of the most up-to-date treatment, care and support for people with cancer.

Leeds Hospitals Charity supports Leeds Cancer Centre to deliver the best by directing support to our six priority areas.

During 21/22 we awarded over £830k across 55 applications to support a range of initiatives and projects to enhance cancer care and treatment in Leeds. From small items like clothing for patients receiving radiotherapy, to bigger projects like digital innovations for research and the latest diagnostic technology that will mean better and quicker diagnoses for people with cancer. Additional observational monitors and falls sensors for use across all cancer wards were also funded to provide a service over and above what the NHS currently provides.

By donating or leaving a gift in your Will to Leeds Hospitals Charity, you can fund the things that make a real difference to patients and their families, and help to enhance the care Leeds Cancer Centre already provides. This includes life-saving equipment, treatments and research into rare diseases, and helps to bring hope, happiness and home comforts to every bedside.

Your donation helps staff at Leeds Cancer Centre to be their very best for your loved ones, when they need it most. Can you support them today?

Leeds Cancer Support (Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre)

Leeds Cancer Support (located within the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre) complements clinical care by offering information and a wide range of holistic support in a warm and welcoming environment. The centre’s services are available to anyone who has been affected by cancer: both patients and those supporting them. The centre benefits from specialist staff and trained volunteers who run services and meet patients and their carers.

Over the last year, charitable funding has continued to fund the provision of the hair loss service, which offers practical and emotional
support for people experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatments. Previously, clients would have to pay prescription charges for their wigs, with a cost of around £78.15, meaning some patients didn’t take up the offer of a wig, even though they would have liked to. Our funding has enabled Leeds Cancer Support to open up the service to every patient, regardless of their ability to pay.
