Event: Great North Run 2015, on 13 September 2015
We support treatment, research and care to make our hospitals even better


Thank you for visiting my page.

This year I will be taking part in the Great North Run to support Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.

More specifically, I will be fundraising for the National Institute of Health Research/Wellcome Trust Manchester Children’s Clinical Research Facility where I work. The centre is a state-of-the-art in-patient research facility where children’s care takes place hand-in-hand with clinical research.  The unit opened in 2009 and as well as being the first in the North West, is one of only a small number across the UK. 

Led by myself, the unit undertakes pioneering work to develop and test life-saving drugs and other treatments to ensure that they are safe and effective in children of all ages.

In 2014 we fundraised to double the unit’s capacity so that we could provide a better environment for the patients who volunteer to take part in our research. This means we can now undertake more studies into conditions and illnesses such as autism and childhood deafness, benefitting children in the North West and beyond. 

Your donations towards my run will help us to continue to save young lives, and shape the futures of children.

Thank you for your support,

Professor Nick Webb.
