Got a question about cancer clinical trials?

Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester recently helped to launch TrialHub at LRH with Professor Stephen Jane and Anne Woollett from Alfred Health and LRH CEO Peter Craighead.

You wouldn’t want to give up living in Gippsland for quids - and as we’ve seen post-COVID, plenty of our city cousins are also looking for a good life in the country.

However, from time to time there can be a few disadvantages to living in regional Victoria. For example, access to the latest clinical trials and treatments may be a real issue for some people who are seriously ill.

Latrobe Regional Hospital has been working on opening up access to clinical trials for a couple of years with major universities and metropolitan hospitals. We understand our limitations and have been slowly building our research team and their skills.

Our recently announced partnership with Alfred Health on a program called TrialHub will continue to build our expertise in delivering cancer clinical trials and give participants access to potentially lifesaving treatments. Initial trials at LRH will focus on prostate cancer, rare blood cancers and melanoma.

If you’ve experienced cancer or supported a family member of friend, you may be curious about clinical trials and how they work.

We’re offering you the chance to hear from and speak to the experts at a free event on Tuesday 1 June 2021 at 6pm.

Meet Alfred Health and LRH’s oncology and research leaders – they’re a great bunch and really interested in improving health outcomes for people in our community.

The event is at the Italian Australian Club in Morwell and runs for about an hour. We’ll even throw in some refreshments! Register your interest at Eventbrite or call Courtney at Alfred Health on 0435 386 055.

Tax Time - Focus on Falls

The end of the financial year is a time many people contribute to fundraising causes. You can donate online to our Focus on Falls Campaign as we raise money to purchase bed alarms for patients at risk of falling in our hospital. On average, one patient falls at LRH every day. We don't want it to be you or someone you love. Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Thank you for your kindness!
