Our Work

We have three main strands to our work:

  • Improving outcomes for bladder cancer patients
  • Improving research into bladder cancer
  • Improving patient support

What we do

We are working to improve outcomes for bladder cancer patients by:

  • Raising awareness of the signs and symptoms among the public so they seek advice sooner
  • Improving awareness and investigation techniques among health professionals to improve early diagnosis
  • Improving the treatment and management of bladder cancer to increase patient survival rates in line with that achieved for other common cancers

We are working to improve research into bladder cancer by:

  • Identifying the key research priorities
  • Encouraging, contributing to and funding research
  • Improving research data and statistics

We are working to improve patient support through:

  • Our high quality information materials and resources library
  • Actively increasing the number of bladder cancer patient support groups across the UK
  • Providing advice and support to both new and existing groups and helping to bring groups together
  • Helping to give bladder cancer patients a voice
