Ms. Clarke said: “I am looking forward to leading the charity and our amazing team to make sure that the one in two people diagnosed with cancer benefit from leading research, the best treatment and compassionate care.

“Until this is achieved, we will not stop, because that’s what the people of this region deserve.”

David Whitney, Chair of Weston Park Cancer said:Emma is passionate about the work of our charity and will bring her inspiring leadership qualities to this key role, as we continue to strive to make a real difference to the lives of people facing cancer and their families.”

Weston Park Cancer Support is located on Northumberland Road, a short walk from Weston Park Cancer Centre. It is home to the charity’s face-to-face services and reopened in September 2021. It provides complementary therapies for people currently undergoing cancer treatment alongside offering patients emotional support.

In 2021 alone, Emma was responsible for the launch of the new Chesterfield transport service – which provides free, safe travel between the University of Derby’s St Helena Campus in Chesterfield, and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, for anyone undergoing cancer treatment.
