NHS London wants to hear from children, young people, families, charities, health bodies and clinicians to help think about the best way to provide children’s cancer services in South London and South East England in the future. Please take a few minutes to complete the surveys below.
Your views and ideas are important and make a real difference.
Why are cancer services changing?
Last year, experts and parents of children with cancer took part in an important discussion about children’s cancer services in England. From this, it was recommended that a children’s cancer centre (or principal treatment centre) must also have a children’s intensive care unit in the same location.
This means cancer services provided in South London and the South East England region will need to change. The Royal Marsden Hospital, which is currently the principal treatment centre for the South East, does not have its own paediatric intensive care unit and children, and young people needing specialised and intensive care are transferred to St George’s Hospital.
NHS London now wants to hear from children, young people, families, charities, health bodies and clinicians to help think about the way forward.
