Support for younger patients

The Oasis Centre

The Oasis centre opened in 2009 as an age appropriate non-clinical facility located in Abingdon House on the hospital site. The centre and access to specialist advice and support is available to all 13-24-year-olds diagnosed with cancer in East Anglia. The Oasis provides an age-appropriate space for young people where direct patient interventions including education, activities, counselling and related meetings can take place. It also provides a focal point for the teenage and young adult specialist team and most importantly gives the young people a place to meet others of the same age going through similar experiences.

Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT)

The TCT provide support for young people with cancer, working to provide the best possible treatment in appropriate environments, educating young people about cancer and fundraising for cancer research.
