With a £100million of public funding committed to the project by Health Secretary Matt Hancock in 2018, Cambridge Children’s is a partnership between two leading NHS trusts – Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH), and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) – and the University of Cambridge (UoC).

Embedding genomic and psychological research alongside clinical expertise in physical and mental child health, Cambridge Children’s will be a brand new state-of-the-art hospital designed to take care of the whole child, not just their illness.

A fundraising campaign will be announced in spring 2021 to raise £100 million in philanthropy for this visionary hospital. It will be a beacon of biomedical expertise that benefits children and young people across the East of England as well as nationally and internationally.
