Haematology Cancer Care at University College London Hospitals (UCLH)
Julian is Patron of Haematology Cancer Care at University College London Hospitals (UCLH)
Haematology Cancer Care is a community bringing together haematology patients, families, supporters and staff to raise funds for the Haematology Unit at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) with a calendar of fun events and is a platform for fundraising activities.
Haematology Cancer Care improves the experience for haematology patients and their families in the Cancer Centre, the Ambulatory Care setting and on the wards. It provides vital state of the art medical equipment, fund continuing professional development within haematology nursing and complementary therapy for patients and families. HCC also funds research projects, for example an HCC donation is currently helping ground-breaking treatment at UCLH reach a greater number of patients.
London Bridgathon for Haematology Cancer Care
As Patron, Julian starts this annual event and sometimes joins the walk too. We have more official photos in our gallery (thanks to Mark Matharu and HCC at UCLH), as well as photos of the jrt forum team as they progress around the course.
The Bridgathon is a 6 mile walk around London's Bridges, and is HCC's flagship fundraising event.
In 2016 the Bridgathon will be held on 18th September, and if you would like to sponsor us, please go to the jrt forum justgiving page.

As Patron, Julian supports events at HCC throughout the year including turning on the lights at the annual christmas party, and on 9th December 2015 joined the UCLH ground breaking ceremony at the site which will house UCLH’s new integrated proton beam therapy (PBT) unit and specialist cancer and surgical treatment facility.
Stars Appeal, Salisbury District Hospital
Julian is a patron of this charity, as is his Green Wing co-star Stephen Mangan, and he has supported a number of events since the charity was launched in 2007 to raise money to fund extra care and equipment over and above that provided by the NHS.
Julian (and Stephen) dropped into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on Tues 6th February 2007 to find out about the impact of the Stars Appeal Little Lives Campaign on the hundreds of babies that are treated there.
He has also attended a number of other events including a Dinner for the Stars event, and on 15th May 2009 Julian co-hosted an auction to benefit the Stars Appeal.
You can find out more about the work of the charity and fund raising events at the Stars Appeal Website.
