An innovative new hospital which will pioneer the care of sick children is on its way to the East of England...

Children’s hospital campaign

In December 2018 the Government announced a commitment of £100 million towards a new children’s hospital for the East of England. The hospital – Cambridge Children’s – will take a visionary new approach to healthcare for young people, fully integrating mental and physical health provision so that children and their families experience complete care tailored to their individual needs.

World-leading paediatrics, including access to individual genetic profiles and cutting-edge research, will enable doctors to provide tailor-made medical interventions alongside psychologically informed care in purpose-built settings.

ACT, Cambridge University and Head to Toe Charity are working together to raise another £100 million in philanthropy to support this vision. Together, we will deliver a transformational hospital that builds a new model of paediatric care in the East of England which sets that standard nationally and internationally.
