The Centre For Clinical Haematology Expansion
Work has started to expand the globally significant Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The transformational £3.2m development to double the capacity of the world class Centre has received over £2m from the Local Growth Fund (LGF) and Cure Leukaemia has made a commitment to raising the additional £1m by December 31st 2017. On this page we will document the progress of the project with photo and video updates in the coming months and also highlight the ways you can get involved to help Cure Leukaemia and the £1m Centre Appeal.
