We work in a collaborative model to deliver high quality cancer services across community, primary, and secondary care in south east London. Our aim is to ensure that patients receive timely diagnosis, high quality treatment, excellent experience, and improved clinical and quality of life outcomes.
We work with a range of partners and organisations to achieve this
We work across three acute trusts in south east London:
- Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
- King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
- Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust
By working together we can align services so that patients can access the best diagnostic tests and treatments and enable patients to have some or part of their treatment closer to home.
The Accountable Cancer Network (ACN) is part of the Cancer Alliance and is the network of acute trust providers of cancer care in south east London.
The Radiotherapy Operational Delivery Network (RT ODN) is comprised of the South East London and the Kent & Medway Cancer Alliances, specialised commissioners and patient representatives together with the radiotherapy services provided by Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW). Together these organisations serve a population of over 3.7 million providing comprehensive cancer services including a full range of radiotherapy treatments for adults. Find out more.
We provide a range of training and resources for GPs and primary care staff across south east London to help them diagnose cancer earlier and ensure the best treatment pathways for patients.
