The Royal Marsden Hospital

Our Teenage Cancer Trust unit at the Royal Marsden is for 16-24 year olds and has nine in-patient beds. All bedrooms are equipped with comfy and cosy soft furnishings, bespoke furniture, TV, DVD and gaming facilities. 

Teenage Cancer Trust funds two expert staff here:

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

The Teenage Cancer Trust Lead Nurse and team are based at the Royal Marsden, and work with four Teenage Cancer Trust Teenage and Young Adult Clinical Nurse Specialists based across the South East, at Brighton, East Kent, West Kent and St George’s Hospitals. These Clinical Nurse Specialists are funded by Teenage Cancer Trust. They champion the needs of young people with cancer and provide specialist expertise and care in local hospitals across the region.

We opened our Teenage Cancer Trust unit at the Royal Marsden in January 2012.
