Minutes of a meeting at NHS North West London said: “Concern had been expressed by patient representatives that Mount Vernon Hospital was not part of the London Cancer Alliance (LCA).

It was noted that this was because cancer services at Mount Vernon Hospital are managed by East and North Herts NHS Trust; that trust has stated that it may consider joining the proposed group in future.”
