About the SSN

The Scottish Sarcoma Network is one of the three National Managed Clinical Networks for Cancer in Scotland.

It was officially launched in November 2004 during its first AGM and its primary aim is to ensure equity of care for all patients in Scotland with sarcoma.

The aim will be achieved by prospectively auditing the quality of care provided to all patients in Scotland so that continual improvements can be made and this will hopefully lead to the outcomes and quality of life for patients being improved.

There are five Centres in Scotland and these are located in:

Aberdeen (split between Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Woodend Hospital)
Dundee (Ninewells Hospital)
Edinburgh (split between Royal Infirmary and Western General Hospital)
Glasgow (split between Royal Infirmary, Gartnavel General Hospital, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus and Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre)
Inverness (Raigmore Hospital)
