The Centre for Childhood Cancer SurvivorThe Centre for Childhood Cancer Survivor was established in 1998 by the current Director, Professor Mike Hawkins, with quinquennial Programme Grant funding from Cancer Research UK and the Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund to carry out the British Childhood Cancer Survivor Study. 

The British Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (BCCSS) is the first national population-based study of survivors of childhood cancer to be undertaken in Britain which assesses a wide spectrum of possible adverse health outcomes of childhood cancer and its treatment. It is based on an underlying cohort of 17981 individuals who were diagnosed with childhood cancer between 1940 and 1991 in Britain and survived at least 5 years.
