We are delighted to announce that on 1 November Leuka and Leukaemia UK merged, bringing together two of the UK’s leading leukaemia and blood cancer charities to create one charity dedicated to innovative research and care for people affected by blood cancers. The two charities have joined forces under the name Leukaemia UK, uniting Leuka’s 37 years’ experience in ground-breaking medical research with Leukaemia UK’s four decades of pioneering care. 

From research to care, the new charity will continue to put people affected by blood cancers at its heart. Together, Leukaemia UK aims to carry out even more world-class research and advances in care.

Leukaemia UK will be led jointly by Leuka's CEO Olive Boles and Leukaemia UK's CEO Angela Smith-Morgan. The charity's new Chair of Trustees is Chris Corbin, current Chair of Leuka, who is supported by a Board including both Leuka and Leukaemia UK Trustees.
