The Ward 34, Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle was opened in January 2012.
Teenage Cancer Trust fund 2 expert staff here:
- Clinical Nurse Specialist
- Youth Support Coordinator
They ensure the best possible quality care is given so that the young person is treated as a young person first and cancer patient second.
Local Hospitals in the North East
As well as the unit we fund at The Great North Children's Hospital for 13-18 year olds, Teenage Cancer Trust have been working closely with smaller designated hospitals in the North East region for young people who live further away from the units and want to be treated closer to home in an environment designed for their age-group.
- At Sunderland Royal Hospital we provided funding and support to develop a single en-suite room
- At the James Cook Hospital we have funded the design work of 3 en-suite rooms and a recreational areas for teenagers and young adults with cancer.
