My role

I lead a multi-professional team to provide age appropriate care to teenage and young adult patients in the West Midlands. Making a difference to young people’s experiences is what it’s all about – we can’t change the big things but we can make a difference with the smaller things.

Witnessing the difference that holistic, compassionate care can bring to teenagers and young adults is always inspiring.

Why Teenage Cancer Trust matters

If Teenage Cancer Trust didn’t fund specialist staff then patients wouldn’t receive care and specialist services tailored to their unique, individual needs.
