Weston Park Hospital is a health facility specialising in the treatment of cancer in Broomhill, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. It is managed by the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The hospitals has its origins in the Sheffield Radium Fund, which was established in 1914. The fund was used to create the Radium Centre in 1930 and subsequently the Sheffield National Centre for Radiotherapy in 1945. Weston Park Hospital was officially opened in April 1970.
In April 1995, Weston Park was designated a cancer centre and the surrounding district hospitals became cancer units, based on recommendations from the Calman–Hine report, the purpose of which was to provide a uniformly high standard of care as close to the patient's home as possible.
