Consultation now closed

NHS England’s 12 week consultation on proposals for the future location of very specialist cancer treatment services for children who live in south London and much of south east England has closed. The consultation ran from Tuesday 26 September to Monday 18 December 2023.

We are grateful for all the responses we received, many of which came from children and young people with experience of cancer or their families, and from staff who look after children and young people. We would also like to thank everyone who promoted the consultation and encouraged people to have their say. 

Consultation feedback report

The independent report on feedback from the public consultation is available on our website. A summary version is also available. Visit our key information page for more details.

We want to make the best possible decision for children with cancer and are considering the feedback carefully. The independent report will be a key part of the information which, alongside all other existing evidence, will be taken into account when we make the decision. 

Decision-making meeting

The decision about the location of very specialist cancer treatment services for children with cancer in south London and much of south east England will be discussed at a meeting on Thursday 14 March, which is due to start at 10:30am and will last for approximately three hours.

Leaders for NHS England (London and South East regions) will come together to consider all the evidence with the objective of reaching a decision on the future location of the children and young person’s Principal Treatment Centre for cancer.

The decision-making meeting will be held in public. This means that members of the public can observe the meeting. To facilitate this for a wide audience, the meeting will be live streamed. The link will be on this website.

The meeting will be held at NHS England’s offices, Wellington House, 133-155 Waterloo Road, London, SE1 8UG. A limited number of spaces will be available for people to observe in person.
