We were announced as winners of the ‘Best innovation in service provision - partnership across the pathway’ category at the Quality in Care Excellence in Oncology awards in London in 2013. The prize was awarded for the therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) service that Newcastle provides. This reflects the TDM work now carried out routinely at national centres for a range of widely used anticancer drugs. This helps to optimise the treatment of childhood cancer patients across the UK.

The group were also finalists in the Bright Ideas in Health Awards in 2018. These Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams working within the NHS, industry and academia, who have risen to the challenge of identifying services provided to patients that can be improved, either through a technical innovation or through better service delivery.
