Youth Cancer Services


The Queensland Youth Cancer Service is for young people with cancer aged between 15-25 years. The State-wide service is coordinated through a multidisciplinary central team based at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, within Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service (CHQ). This central team coordinates the QYCS across and beyond Brisbane, and includes the Gold Coast University Hospital to the south and The Townsville Hospital in the north of the State. Linkage to the private sector will be enhanced through the Mater Private Hospital, South Brisbane.

The QYCS provides expert care to young people with cancer across Queensland. The service is designed specifically for the 15-25 year age group. Young people with cancer have specific physical, social, educational and practical support needs which require the assistance of expertly trained professionals both during and after treatment. Our aim is to provide the best medical, nursing and psychosocial treatment and care available, and we can be found at the following sites:
