Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Review 

30/01/2020 00:00 
NHS England’s Regional Leadership team has recently agreed that University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) should be awarded the contract to run the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre from April 2021.
 

This decision is subject to a due diligence process. In the meantime, UCLH will provide leadership support to Mount Vernon Cancer Centre from April 2020.

If the decision to transfer provider is confirmed, a change in provider would mean a change in the management of the centre. Patients will not need to travel to central London for treatment, unless that is part of an existing cancer pathway or necessary to benefit from a specialist clinical trial or treatment not available at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.

We look forward to working with patients and colleagues at Mount Vernon, East and North Herts NHS Trust and NHS England to develop local cancer provision for the whole Mount Vernon population, in line with the advice from NHS England’s Mount Vernon Programme Board. Any changes proposed will be designed to improve the service, for example to provide better access for patients. A public consultation will take place where necessary.
