The charity

The Cancer Care and Haematology fund (CCHF) was founded in 1990 to raise money for the building of the Cancer Care and Haematology Unit at SMH. It has continued to fundraise since to support the work of the Unit, maintain it at the forefront of good care and innovation and to plan for growth in the future.

The unit

The unit is a unique stand-alone facility, designed and purpose-built to provide a wide range of outpatient and day-case treatments for patients with cancer or a blood disorder, including patients with non malignant blood problems such as clotting and bleeding disorders, anaemia, haemoglobinopathies and immune problems.

There have been many ways – large and small – in which our supporters have raised funds for us over the years, from small individual ideas to major events involving hundreds of people.  If you would like to help us, our fundraising page and Blog may give you some ideas. Want to help out?

Hello and welcome

A diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder changes everything: how we feel about ourselves, our health, our relationships, our livelihood and means of supporting our families, our future.

In this new and unfamiliar landscape, the Cancer Care and Haematology Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital is here to help, to give hope, to treat you medically – with dignity and compassion – and, if humanly possible, to cure you.

You may feel that you are now in a club no-one wants to join but the staff at CCHU understand just how you feel and have dedicated their professional lives to caring, curing and controlling diseases such as yours.

This website aims to tell you more about the CCHU and its work and to show you how to find out as much information as possible about your illness and treatment.
