South East London Cancer Alliance

King’s is part of South East London Cancer Alliance (SELCA), one of 21 Cancer Alliances in England.

SELCA works in a collaborative model to deliver high-quality cancer services across community, primary and secondary care in south east London. SELCA’s aim is to ensure that patients receive timely diagnosis, high-quality treatment, excellent experience, and improved clinical and quality of life outcomes.

Cancer Alliances bring together a range of local organisations – including NHS bodies, local government, charities and patient groups – with shared goals of:

  • fewer people getting cancer
  • more people surviving cancer
  • more people having a positive experience in their treatment and care
  • ensuring everyone receives the same high-quality services, no matter who they are or where they live
  • more people being supported to live as well as possible after their treatment is over

Underlying all these objectives are the principles of improving patient experience and reducing health inequalities.
