Young hospital patients get space

Inside the room
The room is based at the QMC site

Teenage patients at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham are getting a new room of their own.

It means those too old for children's wards but too young for the adult wards can mix with people their own age.

They will also be able to play video games and use the internet in the refurbished facility which was officially unveiled on Wednesday.

The room was refurbished with help from the Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) charity.

The NUH youth team will visit wards encouraging people aged between 11 and 25 to get together.

The five workers in the team will encourage the young patients to offer each other mutual support.

Activities such as drama workshops will also be available.
