Chemotherapy is prescribed using a pan-cancer network e-prescribing system (Aria).
The early phase trials team run by the Oxford University Department of Oncology is fully integrated with the NHS department, and there is a full NIHR/CRN funded late phase research team to support recruitment into clinical trials and to ensure opportunities for all patients to be involved in clinical research.
