Birmingham Children's Hospital
Our teenage and young adult areas in Waterfall House at Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH) are for 13-18 year olds. You’ll find six beds in the teenage and young adult in-patient unit (located on level two). Our level two unit has wall art, Teenage Cancer Trust Wifi and laptops, Sky TV, a pool table, jukebox and comfy and cosy furniture in the social space. The teenage and young adult outpatient bay and assessment room on level one also has wall art and two mobile gaming stations.
Teenage Cancer Trust funds three expert staff at BCH:
- Two Teenage Cancer Trust Clinical Nurse Specialists
- One Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator
They make sure each person having treatment on our ward gets the best possible quality care and is treated as a young person first, and cancer patient second.
Before the new Waterfall House facility opened in 2018, our unit was based on Ward 15 of BCH. Our previous unit opened in 2010.
