Mesothelioma UK

Mesothelioma UK is a national specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. The charity is dedicated to providing, specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.

The charity integrates into NHS front line services to ensure specialist mesothelioma nursing is available at the point of need. This is achieved through a growing network of specialist mesothelioma nurses, regionally based in NHS hospitals but funded by Mesothelioma UK.

The charity was launched in 2004 with initial financial support from Macmillan Cancer Support and later from the Mick Knighton Mesothelioma Research Fund. We became an independent charity in 2009 and changed status from a Charitable Trust to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in 2018.
