About Mesothelioma UK
Mesothelioma UK is a national specialist resource centre, specifically for asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma, providing free specialist Mesothelioma information, support & improved care and treatment. The charity is dedicated to providing specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.
The charity integrates into NHS front line services to ensure specialist mesothelioma nursing is available at the point of need. This is achieved through a growing network of specialist mesothelioma nurses, regionally based in NHS hospitals but funded by Mesothelioma UK.
Mesothelioma UK is based at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust Glenfield site.
Of the 5000 asbestos-related deaths a year over half of these are from Mesothelioma.
The charity relies entirely on donations, legacies, fundraising and sponsorship to ensure all services provided free of charge across the UK.
