The service

All children suffering from leukaemia or cancer within our area are treated by us. We work within the Southwest shared care system, Bristol children's hospital being the regional unit.

Situated in the Children's unit at the RUH.

The unit is divided into three area's, babies, toddlers/children, and adolescents.

We have a large playroom, school room, and adolescent chill out room. Parent facilities for sleeping and relaxing away from the main ward are all within the unit.

Purpose-built cubicles with parents room and shower with toilet attached are used when ever possible for our children.
