Sheffield Children’s Hospital is the Principal Treatment Centre for children and teenagers with cancer, taking referrals from within South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire.

The Oncology and Haematology Unit has a specialist 14 bedded ward (Ward 6) and a dedicated Haematology and Oncology Centre for children and young people with cancer.

We participate in national/multi-national trials for the treatment of brain tumours.

There are weekly meetings to plan and review treatment to ensure high quality care for patients. The meetings consists of paediatric oncologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, histopathologists, clinical oncologists, specialist nurses and radiographers and an MDT co-ordinator.

Patients and their families have access to an extensive multidisciplinary team that ensures all aspects of their medical and psychosocial care is co-ordinated to their needs.

All patients are allocated a key worker (Paul Coyle or Rachel Ducker, our Paediatric Oncology Outreach Nurse Specialists) for the duration of their treatment.
