Cambridge Cancer

Cambridge Cancer (full name “the Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital”) is a partnership between Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Cambridge and the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre.


In October 2020 Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that the government would provide funding for Cambridge Cancer to be built adjacent to Addenbrooke’s Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.


Additional fundraising and philanthropy will be needed, but the news of government funding accelerated an already ambitious plan that will lead ultimately to the building of the new hospital by 2025.
