Dr Jeffrey White, Trustee, Sarcoma UK

Jeff is a consultant medical oncologist at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre; and former National Lead Clinician for the Scottish Sarcoma Network. The Network was formally launched in November 2004 and its aim is to optimise the management of patients with sarcoma in Scotland.

Jeff says “In my role, I recognise some of the limitations of patient care that the NHS delivers. Working with third sector organisations is a very good way to enhance the patient experience with the NHS and I feel that Sarcoma UK are very adept at such work. Moreover, such partnership work provides a useful professional resource and voice for a diverse group of healthcare professionals.”

Sarcoma UK is registered as a charity in Scotland and provides support and information to a growing number of people affected by sarcoma in Scotland.
