Congratulations to Hashim Ahmed and the Prostate Cancer Team for receiving a certificate of commendation in the 2015 CREST award (Cancer Research Excellence in Surgical Trials).

This commendation was made on the basis of leadership, impressive recruitment metrics, the depth and breadth of portfolio and a clearly evident multidisciplinary team approach. Although not winning on this occasion, the team was acknowledged as a great example of how surgeons can work as part of a multidisciplinary trials group to the benefit of cancer patients, and should be congratulated.
