Make-over for cancer ward
Newly-designed room offers young cancer patients a dedicated space whilst in hospital
Young patients, who have received or are receiving treatment for cancer, at Derriford Hospital, have officially opened a newly-designed space on Bracken Ward.
The dedicated room, which has been revamped to become a more age-appropriate space for our young patients, has been decorated with a woodland image and now contains computer consoles and comfortable furniture.
The room was officially opened today by Connor Shellis, who recently received treatment at Derriford Hospital. Connor was joined by patients Lucy Griffiths, Megan Kirkup, Alastair Whettell, their loved ones, hospital staff and representatives from Teenage Cancer Trust and CLIC Sargent.
