Support our work

The T12 Teenage Cancer Trust Unit was first opened in 2005. Working together with our hospital partners and design teams, we delivered a full refurbishment of T12 including all the bed spaces, corridors and recreation room. This was officially opened to patients in November 2016. 

Teenage Cancer Trust fund 2 expert staff at the unit:

  • Nurse Consultant for London 
  • Youth Support Coordinator

They ensure the best possible quality care is given so that the young person is treated as a young person first and cancer patient second.
