About the ward: 

We are the regional centre for children aged from birth to 16 years who have cancer (oncology) and blood disorders (haematology), caring for children receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We are also the medical ward for children aged 3 to 16 years from the Cambridge area.

The ward consists of 17 beds divided into six cubicles, two double rooms, one triple room and a four-bed bay. These beds/rooms are allocated according to medical need. 

Ward facilities

  • A parent/carer's bed is found next to every child's bed. We can only accommodate one parent/carer on the ward.
  • We have a playroom, teenage room, school room, parents room and laundry room.
  • There is a vending machine for Hospedia cards (for bedside TV and telephone use) in the main hospital concourse.
  • Post is delivered twice a day to the ward. Outgoing post can be placed in the out tray on the reception desk.
  • Toilets on the wards are for the use of patients only. Toilets for visitors' use are situated on the main concourse.
Finding us: 

Ward C2 is on level 2 (ground floor) of the hospital.

From the main hospital entrance: in the reception area turn right onto the main concourse. Turn left and go past the hairdressers towards the main ward lifts. Walk straight past the main lifts. Ward C2 entrance is on the left hand side.

For security, there is an intercom at the ward door.

If your child is likely to be hospitalised for two weeks or more, you can get a discounted parking ticket from the main reception. This allows you to exit from the car parks for 14 consecutive days from the day you validate the ticket.
