We Are NordicQ – it’s our mission to help
We help, as we consider that our duty, simply because we can.
Therefore we find charity important.
Our main Charity
The Royal Marsden's Oak Centre for Children and Young People is
one of the largest comprehensive children’s cancer centres in Europe. It sees almost 600 inpatients and more than 5,000 day patients every year.
The Royal Marsden has scored amongst the top Trusts in the country for patient experience for children and young people, according to results published by the Care Quality Commission.
Exceeding previous ratings, 100% of our paediatric patients felt like they were well looked after whilst in hospital and the hospital scored above average in a number of areas including: pain management; experience on the hospital ward such as privacy when receiving care and treatment; and communication with hospital staff. As the Centre is based at The Royal Marsden, a world leader in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education, patients benefit from receiving their treatment in a comprehensive cancer centre.
Cancer in childhood or adolescence is extremely rare and therefore it is vital that these patients are treated in specialist centres. As a Principal Treatment Centre, we provide care for all children with cancer in the South Thames area, which includes Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The clinical service is provided by a team of paediatric oncologists with on-site access to radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging and pathology, specialist cancer nursing, symptom care and pharmacy expertise.
“The Children’s Unit at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton is such a great place. We are a friendly, hard-working team. Children with cancer need the best nurses with specialist care and that’s what we have here.”

Supported by The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
Supporters of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity have enabled the Charity to help improve the patient experience for children and their families. The Charity contributed £16 million to the cost of the Oak Centre for Children and Young People when it was built and have since funded the creation of break-out spaces such as the Pandora parents’ lounge and outdoor play areas.
The Charity continues to fund a number of different services within the centre including a team of play specialists who use their understanding of child development, therapeutic play activities and distraction techniques to help young patients prepare for and cope with painful or invasive procedures, scans and treatment and to ensure the service runs smoothly. The Charity also supports the pain management team, who work closely with the physiotherapists and psychologists to help children and young people improve their pain management and find ways of coping.
The Royal Marsden Oak for
Children and Young people
Because we strongly feel that no child should ever be ill, and certainly not to be ill due to cancer, we provide “The Royal Marsden Oak for Children and Young people” as our main charity and donate as much as we can.
In our opinion, the children staying, their families and the staff working here, they are the real hero’s of our society and they deserve as much help as possible.
