Tech Libraries For All Young Cancer Patients

We have the ultimate goal of ensuring all young cancer patients throughout the UK and Ireland have access to the technology they need to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation and ensure their education stays on track. To date we have provided £51,800 worth of laptops and iPads to 16 hospitals that admit young cancer patients with the intention of enabling young people to access what they need to continue their education and help them maintain important links with friends and family through social media and Skype. The equipment provided varies depending on the size of the unit and the need of the young patients. Some units have a focus on education, especially if the patients are younger and some have a preference for iPads, providing an escape to patients through their favourite films, programmes or music as well as allowing them to communicate with friends and family. Below are the hospitals that have already received a Tech Library; Alderhey Hospital, Liverpool Castle Hill Hospital, Hull Clatterbridge Hospital, Wirral LGI, Leeds St. James's, Leeds Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital, Aberdeen Sheffield Children's Hospital, Sheffield Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield Manchester Children's Hospital, Manchester The Christie Hospital, Manchester Bristol Haemotology & Oncology Centre, Bristol Poole Hospital, Dorset Ninewells Hospital, Dundee University College Hospital, London Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham
