This video has been produced for Leicester Hospitals Charity to promote the Our Space Appeal, an ambitious project to create a world-class Children and Young People’s Cancer Unit for 0-24 year olds at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
Leicester Hospitals Charity, with support from the Teenage Cancer Trust, and the Robbie Anderson Cancer Trust, need to raise £1.4 million for the project to go ahead. If the money can be raised in time, work on the new unit will start in summer 2012.
Currently, children are treated in the children’s hospital. Young adults have specialist treatment in adult oncology and haematology wards and outpatients. Other treatment is spread out across different areas of the hospitals. This can be particularly difficult for teenagers and young adults both when first diagnosed and treated for cancer and if they need to make the transition from children’s to adult cancer services.
The new integrated unit will totally transform the environment in which children, teenagers and young adults are treated. The careful use of design, lighting and colour will turn an ordinary hospital ward into a space that children will find stimulating whatever their age.
