About us

Cambridge Children’s is a unique collaboration between Cambridge University Hospitals, University of Cambridge and the Cambridge and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.

The department of Paediatrics and the department of Psychiatry form part of the University of Cambridge’s School of Clinical Medicine, which is recognised as the top medical school in the United Kingdom and one of the top three medical schools in the world (QS World University Rankings 2018).

Biomedical discoveries have already changed the world, from the first direct measurement of blood pressure to the unravelling of the complexities of DNA, Cambridge has always been at the forefront of the rapidly changing landscape of modern medicine.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) is dedicated to providing high quality care with compassion. The Trust delivers many of the NHS services that are provided outside of hospital and in the community such as physical, mental health and specialist services. We provide integrated physical and mental health services for adults and older people; specialist mental health and learning disability services; children and young people’s mental health services; children’s community services (Peterborough); social care; and ground-breaking research.

Cambridge University Hospitals is one of the largest and best known trusts in the country delivering care through Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals. It is also a leading national centre for specialist treatment, a government-designated comprehensive biomedical research centre, one of only six academic health science centres in the UK and a university teaching hospital with a worldwide reputation. Building on these different elements, its vision is to improve people’s quality of life through innovative and sustainable healthcare.
