We are pleased to announce that Dr Syed Rahman has been appointed as the Cobalt Lung Intervention Clinical Fellow at The Royal Brompton Hospital. Cobalt provides the ultra-low dose CT service to support the Royal Brompton and Royal Marsden Partners Lung Health Check Programme.
The Royal Brompton is also a key centre supporting lung health check programmes with follow-up and surgical cases.
The clinical fellow will develop a number of research projects in lung cancer and teaching materials to aid other centres.
By supporting the post the Charity will be helping to improve the ‘patient pathway’ from diagnosis, to supporting vital research leading to effective treatments.
Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals make up the largest specialist heart and lung centre in the UK and among the largest in Europe. The Royal Brompton has pioneered referral services to offer the fast-track lung cancer and “straight to biopsy” approach recommended by the NHS. They have a strong record of research in lung cancer, in partnership with the National Heart and Lung Institute and we are proud to be working with them.
