Cambridge Children’s Hospital
Cambridge Children’s Hospital will be the first facility of its kind purpose-built to fully integrate physical and mental healthcare for children and young people (CYP).
Underpinned by University of Cambridge Children’s Research Institute, the hospital aims to show the benefits of integrated care applied to eating disorders, self-harm and a range of chronic physical health conditions that carry mental health vulnerabilities.
We will use sophisticated technologies such as genome sequencing to improve earlier diagnosis and treatment, and new technologies to deliver care closer to home. Aiming to de-escalate and better manage conditions in the community without children ever coming to hospital.
This aspirational project has captured the imagination of University of Cambridge alumni in the UK and around the world who are giving generously to our ‘Whole New Way’ campaign https://www.cambridgechildrens.org.uk/.
We have engaged with 500 CYP in Cambridge Children’s Network and you can sample their enthusiasm here: https://www.cuh.nhs.uk/news/teenagers-tell-duke-and-duchess-about-cambridge-childrens-hospital/ and learn more about their stories on the website.
