CPOC and The King Hussein Cancer Centre

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The King Hussein Cancer Centre (KHCC) in Jordan have signed a memorandum of understanding to support and train a team there in Cytoreductive Surgery with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC). The KHCC is a not-for-profit specialist cancer centre funded by charity.

As part of this, Mr. Omer Aziz and Professor Sarah O’Dwyer travelled to Jordan in December 2018 and performed their first 2 CRS/HIPEC cases with the KHCC team. They also delivered a grand round presentation, were invited to see the KHCC patients and to meet with their radiologists and oncologists.
