Overview

Part of the largest children’s cancer centre in Europe, we treat patients with many different malignant and non-malignant solid tumour cancers.

The Haematology and Oncology department at Great Ormond Street Hospital operates as a unified cancer centre with University College Hospital London.  

Together the department forms the largest paediatric/adolescent oncology centre in Europe. This collaboration enables excellent patient care and an efficient and effective transition of patients between services and treatments. The clinical service is enhanced by exceptional clinical and translational research. 

The Oncology service treats patients with solid tumour cancers. 

We provide tertiary cancer care along the disease pathway and serve as the principal treatment centre for children diagnosed with a number of different malignant and non-malignant oncological diagnoses. 

Please be aware that private referrals for NHS eligible patients are not possible for Oncology. This is because children requiring treatment in this department will need continued and well-co-ordinated care, and good communication from the outset with their local paediatric services is essential.  By entering the private treatment route, we are unable to provide the long term local support services required. 

Conditions we treat

  • Ewing’s sarcoma 
  • Hepatoblastoma 
  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma 
  • Nephroblastoma 
  • Neuroblastoma 
  • Retinoblastoma
