Support our work

The Ward 11 Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham was opened in August 2010 and the Ward 3 Teenage Cancer Trust Young Adult Area was opened in July 2013. We have also enhanced a dedicated Teenage and Young Adult bed space in the recovery suite in theatre.
