COLLABORATING TRUSTS

The MCRC Biobank collects samples from five collaborating NHS Trusts across the region. These are:

  • The Christie NHS Foundation Trust (CFT)
  • Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (SRFT)
  • University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM)
  • Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (PAT)
  • Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT)

Different hospital Trusts across Manchester specialise in treating different cancer types. By targeting collections to areas of specialisation, the Biobank will be able to build a comprehensive bank of samples to facilitate future research into all types of cancer. The table below details which sample types the Biobank collects from each collaborating Trust.
