Charities Matthew Potter Supports:

Charity Support

The Oracle charity funds pioneering scientific research at the University of Oxford that concentrates solely on head and neck cancer. By learning more about this group of diseases “oracle aims to find ways to prevent them, in addition to developing treatments that result in fewer life changing side effects.

Having a charity that is very much part of the Oxford Head and Neck unit means that financial donations go directly to research or clinical tools and equipment.

In turn, this means that clinicians can guide the research and safely oversea that donated funds get directly to the patients or research laboratories without the excessive administrative costs and middle men.

Charity Support

Without the support of the Macmillan Cancer Support nurses, Mr Matthew Potter feels he and others in the field would not be able to provide the specific care they need for cancer patients.

Macmillan Cancer Support not only supports the patient during their treatment but their families also, and are there to support every step of the way. Mr Matthew Potter was adopted by MacMillan in 2014 and he has since remained a Macmillan Cancer Support adopted consultant ever since.

Matthew Potter feels that Macmillan Cancer Support also provides a key basis for improving the education of the public and cancer sufferers. Locally Macmillan Cancer Support have supported “patient away days” cancer conferences, as well as invaluable patient and doctor feedback sessions.

Matthew Potter tries yearly to take part in “Ride London”, a 100 mile bike ride through central London and Surrey on Closed roads.

Over the last few years he and his colleagues have raised over £10,000 for the above charities.
