Diagnostic Tests And Biomarkers

I work for a medical comms agency called Nucleus Global. We are developing an online resource for cancer patients which aims to help people learn more about the hospitals in their area. 


We have gathered lots of data regarding hospitals in English trusts, and we are now expanding the site into other areas, including haematological cancers.  I thought it would be useful to get in touch to see if you’d be able to help me pull together some information about the hospitals in Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


Part of the website will show patients which diagnostic tests (and therefore biomarkers) are used/available at each hospital. I have attached a list of the available tests and biomarkers, but it would be incredibly helpful if you could let me know which are available at which hospital throughout Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


I hope you’re able to help me with the above – we hope that the site will be a useful resource for patients. If you would like to see the beta version of the site you can find it here: https://www.informed-patients.com/#/search



We wish to confirm that these tests are not performed at our Trust but at the Haematological Malignancy Diagnostic Service based at St James’s Hospital Leeds.
