Our objective is to raise funds to directly help improve the quality of life for those patients who suffer from head and neck diseases and their carers. We feel this can be done by funding three main areas:
The correct diagnosis of a patient’s complaint is obviously vital to deciding how to treat their condition. Until we can see what we’re doing, we’re working in the dark. Many of the larger, more specialised pieces of equipment just cannot be funded by the NHS, so this is where Get A-Head can help.
Unless we can understand how a disease works at it’s most basic level, it’s difficult to develop new treatments. Sometimes these developments are time consuming and expensive. This is where we can help by funding specialist research fellowships into thyroid cancer and supporting the consumable costs.
Sharing information via lecturing on relevant courses, production of editorials and reviews into associated medical journals, assisting specialist training for nurses and other key personnel… these are all areas where Get A-Head is keen to assist with continued funding.
