Pinkie Chambers

Pinkie Chambers is a senior pharmacist with over 10 years experience within both UCLH and The London Cancer network. Her ultimate vision is to improve patient experience and outcomes for those receiving chemotherapy, through applied health research. Pinkie has used her patient facing role to guide and prioritise research projects, collaborating with universities and industry. The resultant effect of the research has been changes in guidelines and pathways both locally and internationally.

Her HEE NCEL/CLAHRC Fellowship project was to re- design the current chemotherapy pathway to reduce the overall side effects of chemotherapy treatment. Pinkie spent her fellowship year developing a PhD project to explore one element of the novel pathway, and was successful in securing a prestigious NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship award to fully fund her PhD.

Pinkie is Joint Chair of the London Cancer Chemotherapy Expert Reference Group which aims to develop chemotherapy services and re-shape the chemotherapy pathway.
