University College Hospital London
We have two Teenage Cancer Trust spaces at University College Hospital London, our T12 unit and T13N unit.
The T12 ward is for 13-19 year olds and has 20 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 three expert staff at the T12 ward:
Nurse Consultant for London
Two Youth Support Coordinators
They make sure each young person having treatment on our ward gets the best possible quality care and is treated as a young person first, cancer patient second.
T12 was fully refurbished in November 2016.
T13N ward is a nominated eight-bed in-patient unit for young adults aged 20 -24 years, on a 24-bed adult haematology ward. Teenage Cancer Trust has designed a social space on this ward so young people having treatment can chat with others their age going through similar experiences.
We fund a Youth Support Coordinator based on T13 who ensures all young adults are treated as the individuals they are.
