Queen Elizabeth Hospital Young Person’s Unit
Our Teenage Cancer Trust Young Person’s Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham is designed for 16-24 year olds and has 12 in-patient beds. 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 six expert staff:
- Nurse Consultant
- Two Clinical Nurse Specialists
- Two Youth Support Coordinators
- Teenage and Young Adult Service Administrator
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.
Our first unit in Birmingham was one of the first Teenage Cancer Trust units in the country when it opened in 2000 at the previous Queen Elizabeth Hospital. We opened the doors of our current facility in May 2011 when the new hospital was built.
