Support this unit

The first unit in Birmingham was built at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham in 2000 as one of the first Teenage Cancer Trust units in the country. This amazing unit was updated and re-provided in May 2011 when the new hospital was built.

Teenage Cancer Trust funded 3 expert staff here:

  • Lead Nurse
  • Clinical Nurse Specialist
