About SACCSG

Paediatric Oncology Units

It is the belief of the SACCSG that children with cancer are most appropriately treated in dedicated Paediatric Oncology Centres under the auspices of specialist paediatric oncologists. These units are based in teaching hospitals and associated with the paediatric departments of medical schools.
