Skåne University Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre
We receive patients locally, regionally and from all over the southern healthcare region. We also have national assignments for highly specialised care in several diagnostic groups.
Providing cancer care of highest quality
The goal of Skåne University Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre is to provide cancer care and cancer research of the highest international quality based on patient needs, research-based treatment methods and innovations.
The centre is a collaboration between Skåne University Hospital, Lund University, Regional Cancer Centre South, Medical Services and Palliative Care and ASIH within primary care.
Developing patient-oriented research
One of Skåne University Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre's major assignments is to work to ensure that research quickly benefits patients. A large part of the research is carried out in collaboration with national and international research networks and research groups.
Within the centre, Lund University, Skåne University Hospital and all stakeholders collaborate to create sustainable structures for the development of clinical patient-oriented research.
The centre aims to slowly raise the bar for the minimum level of conditions for clinical research. This means, among other things, increasing the daily collaboration between healthcare and research.

Reference council for patients and relatives
The centre aims to develop care for, and together with, the patients. A reference council for patients and relatives plays an important part in achieving this goal. The council’s mission is to include the patient perspective in all improvement work. The council consists of 10 members who meet once a month.
When you work with cancer care at Skåne University Hospital, you become part of the Skåne University Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre. This means that you are continuously given opportunities for education and development in cancer care. You are also able to participate in development work within the centre.
