Unit for teenage cancer patients opened in Leeds

A new hospital unit for teenager cancer patients has opened in Leeds.

The £450,000 facility with 12 beds will be used by teenagers aged between 13 and 16 who have been diagnosed with the illness.

The new unit, funded by the Teenager Cancer Trust, will replace a ward currently being used at St James' University Hospital.

The patients at Leeds General Infirmary will benefit from four en-suite rooms and a recreational room.
