Endorsement for the Children’s Cancer Centre (CCC) has been received from the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England, with the approval of the Full Business Case for the development. This significant achievement follows the granting of full planning permission by Camden Council in April 2023.

Mat Shaw, CEO of GOSH said: “I am delighted we can move forward with our plans for this fantastic new facility.

“Children with rare and complex cancers will receive care in the best possible environment, making it easier for them to be able to play, continue with school and participate in normal activities. The CCC will enhance our ability to research and innovate to develop new and kinder treatments for cancer.”

“With significant outside space, a new hospital school, imaging, theatres and critical care services linked to the existing hospital, children and young people coming to GOSH will have access to the very latest technologies and receive care and treatment in environments that reflect their needs”.

Throughout the development of the CCC, children and young people have been involved, advising the team on architecture, the new school, the entrance and outside spaces, meaning this facility has their needs at the heart of its design.

We are working closely with our construction partner, Sisk, and Camden Council to ensure that everything is in place to enable us to start on site during 2024.
