2016 : Who's that opening the teenage cancer unit?

Roger Daltrey CBE; Sarah, Duchess of York; and Kevin Bridges open the Royal Hospital for Children's new teenage cancer unit

The replacement for the charity’s previous facilities at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill  provides care for young people aged 13 to 16 across the West of Scotland. Almost £400,000 has been invested in creating the unit as well as specialist staff and running costs.

The unit is designed to feel more like a home from home than a hospital ward. They are places where young people with cancer can receive expert, specialist care and meet others going through similar experiences, so they feel less alone and scared.
