Leicester Royal Infirmary

Ward 27, the Teenage Cancer Trust unit at Leicester Royal Infirmary, is for 13-24 year olds and has five in-patient beds and a day-care facility. All bedrooms are equipped with comfy and cosy soft furnishings, bespoke furniture, TV, DVD and gaming facilities. We also provide free Teenage Cancer Trust Wifi and laptops.

Teenage Cancer Trust funds two expert staff at the unit: 

They make sure each person having treatment on our ward gets the best possible quality care and is treated as a young person first, cancer patient second. 

We opened the Ward 27 Teenage Cancer Trust unit in November 2012.
