Helping to make North-east Scotland’s cancer and haematology care the best it can be.

Formed in 1997 Friends of ANCHOR is an Aberdeen-based charity which directly supports cancer and haematology care in the North-east of Scotland including Orkney and Shetland. 

The charity’s committee includes representation from senior nurses and consultants from the main cancer and haematology care facility in the North-east of Scotland, ensuring a direct correlation between the needs of the ANCHOR unit and the targeted allocation of Friends of ANCHOR funding. Money is also invested into ground-breaking, local cancer research projects to continue to develop improved treatments, diagnosis and better understanding of the disease which hopefully one day will ultimately lead to a cure. 

The Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy (ANCHOR) unit is a fully funded NHS department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary which treats patients with all forms of cancer and both malignant and benign blood disorders.
