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.

We also fund a national Lead Nurse for Scotland and a Teenage and Young Adult Multi-disciplinary Team Coordinator in partnership with the Managed Service Network (MSN) for Children and Young People with Cancer.
They make sure each person having treatment gets the best possible quality care and is treated as a young person first, cancer patient second.
