When we first arrived in Bristol, we were placed on a medical ward, used to dealing with all sorts of ailments. Once we received Poppy’s diagnosis, we were moved upstairs to the Oncology floor. Initially to the Adolescent Ward (35) and eventually to our room on the Children’s Ward (34). The difference in the surroundings upstairs was remarkable. Heartbreaking and inspiring all at the same time, these wards cater to long term young patients and the quality of the setting is astounding. The snug, lounge and atrium for the teenagers more familiar in a youth club than a hospital.
