About us

The South East London Cancer Network (SELCN) came into being in June 2001, serving a local resident population of 1.5 million across the six boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich, although for specialised services and less common cancers it has a larger catchment population.

The South East London Cancer Network was established with five key aims:

1. The strategic development of cancer services for patients in accordance with national policy, Cancer Plan, the local modernisation agenda and HIMP priorities.

2 The setting, implementation and monitoring of evidence based protocols and agreed quality and accreditation standards.

3. The establishment of Network-wide policies and systems.

4. The establishment of effective communication across professional and organisational boundaries within the Network.

5. The development of high quality cancer services and research that is of importance to the Nation.
