About Us

The Head & Neck 5000 study was funded by a grant from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). 


The follow-up study was funded from three sources: a Cancer Research UK programme grant awarded to Professor Martin who is working with us on some of the Follow-up data, an award from the Research and Innovation Department at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston, and Professor Ness' NIHR Senior Investigator Award.


It is run collaboratively by University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) and 

University of Bristol (UoB).
