Children in heart

The Derbyshire Children’s Hospital, at the Royal Derby Hospital, aims to place children and families first. The children’s hospital was purpose built in 1996 to provide high quality care for children and young people.The children’s out-patient department provides excellent care and expert management for all general paediatric medical and surgical conditions, as well as many specialist problems. In 2010, we saw over 60,000 children and young people in the department.

Anyone who has ever had a child stay at Cheethams knows just how important the wards are to the people of Stoke-on-Trent. Staff on the wards do a fantastic job, but always require equipment and additional support. There are a number of specialised children's wards, they have a paediatric intensive care unit and a short stay 48 hour ward for children who are quite sick but recover quickly. There is also a ward for children with complex needs and a separate ward for children with leukaemia or tumours. Together we can make their stay at University Hospital that little bit more comfortable.

Registered charity number 1062559

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed for their needs. We want every young person with cancer to have access to their specialist support, no matter where they live. Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support. Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried.
