Kids Deserve St George’s: children’s cancer services consultation

Children’s cancer services at St George’s Hospital

The future of children’s cancer services is changing as NHS England (London and South East regions) is deciding where a Principal Treatment Centre for children’s cancer services should be located.

This follows a national service specification in 2021, which sets out how children’s cancer services should be on the same site as a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and other specialised children’s services.
