About Youth Cancer Services

The Youth Cancer Services (YCS) are specialised treatment and support services for young people with cancer, based in major hospitals throughout Australia.

YCS are specially designed and delivered to meet the unique treatment, care and support needs of young people with cancer so they get the best outcomes.

There are five lead Youth Cancer Services, based in major hospitals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. The lead services work with over 25 hospitals and health services across Australia to ensure all young people with cancer have access to the best, age-appropriate care and support. Patients may be treated at a lead hospital, or the YCS team can work with local doctors to plan and provide the best treatment for a young person wherever they are.
