Our Teenage Cancer Trust unit

Our unit allows young people to be with other patients their own age, who are receiving treatment for all types of cancer, leukaemia and some non-cancer illnesses. It was designed by young people who have completed their treatment.

The unit is made up of an inpatient ward, a day care ward and also social space.

Each ward is managed by a senior sister (female) or senior charge nurse (male). All of the nurses who work in our unit have chosen to work with young people with cancer, and have had extra training to do so.

Some treatment may take place in other parts of the hospital.
