Jarrod is one of the UK’s foremost Head and Neck Cancer specialists and is the lead clinician in Head and Neck Cancer at The Manchester Royal Infirmary and The Christie Hospital.
It has been my ambition since becoming an ENT Consultant in Head and Neck / Thyroid Surgery to be instrumental in providing additional support and care for patients and family. Funding research also forms part of this care programme.
Oasis will raise funds to improve head and neck cancer treatment through three key areas:
Research is required to better, more effective treatment. Oasis will support scientists from the University of Manchester and clinicians to develop and roll out important new treatments and new treatment approaches for head and neck cancer patients. Oasis will also fund innovative ways of providing more effective care.
The NHS has limited resources. The funds will be used for clinical equipment and to fund better support for patients with head and neck cancer and their families and carers.
Building awareness about head and neck cancer in terms of its symptoms, treatment and care is critical for optimising the wellbeing of patients and the understanding and competency of those treating or looking after them.
Our funding aims to support educational and awareness-building programmes for all those touched by head and neck cancer including patients, clinical staff, professional carers and the patient’s family and friends.
These programmes aim to cover all aspects of head and neck cancer and provide practical advice for patients and those caring for them before, during and after treatment.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
