By Steve Williamson on 29 June 2018

Thank you to my NHS England Cancer Pharmacist colleagues for sharing the Information on the 'potential' treatment sites for delivery of CAR-T therapy in England.  As yet we are unaware of potential sites in the rest of the home nations, so would be grateful if BOPA members can share any relevant information on this exciting new cancer treatment via our forums or via email to steve.williamson@nhct.nhs.uk so we can share

NHS England is pleased to confirm that the following 8 centres have been selected for the first JACIE inspections for accreditation in delivering Immune Effector Cell therapy, based on their submissions, geographical access and advice from JACIE and industry partners:
