From time to time we are contacted by different organisations who are hoping to create positive changes in the area of cervical cancer and they need your help.
So, instead of listing it all on the forum, we now have a new page on our website where we’ll be keeping all of the information about research so it’s worth having a look from time to time to see if there’s anything you would like to get involved in.
You can find it on the website by visiting http://www.jostrust.org.uk/support/research
Currently, there are a number of different opportunities to get involved with the research so do please take a look.
Getting involved with this kind of research could really help others benefit from your experiences so please do go to our new research pages to check out ways that you can help and all the relevant details.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Just to let you know that there is some new research to get involved with on the relevant pages. Don’t forget to take a peek from time to time to see what’s new.

Just a quick heads up that there is some new research going on regarding sexual difficulties after surgery or radiotherapy which some of you may be interested in getting involved in.
We know from talking to women who have gone through treatment for cervical cancer that this is a really important area and we hope that you will take a look at the information and consider being a part of the research which will hopefully lead to improvements in the care and information given to those women who do experience difficulties post treatment.
