If the Galleri test can find these signs earlier than other tests and before people have symptoms of cancer, it may mean that cancer can be treated more successfully. 

The research team would like 140,000 people aged 50 to 77 to give blood samples and take part in the NHS-Galleri trial.

Who can take part

You can volunteer to take part in the trial if you get an invitation letter from the NHS and all of the following are true:

  • You are aged 50 to 77
  • You have not been diagnosed or treated for cancer in the last 3 years
  • You are registered with a GP in one of the areas where the trial is taking place

Who cannot take part

You cannot take part if you have been diagnosed or treated for cancer in the last 3 years or are currently having tests (or waiting for tests) due to suspected cancer.

People from Black and Asian communities are encouraged to take part as they are currently under-represented in the trial.
