Social Zone Teenage Cancer Trust unit Leicester

The challenge: Being told you have cancer presents anyone with a huge challenge – particularly if you are a teenager or young adult. Creating an environment which feels reassuring, optimistic and friendly is similarly challenging. Grosvenor Interiors have worked in partnership with the Teenage Cancer Trust to provide age appropriate spaces on several projects, including Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Our approach: Such an environment can never be a ‘home from home’ but our objective was to avoid the hospital stereotype as much as possible. Therefore we included comfortable cinema style chairs within the social space, purple and turquoise themes with Wall Glamour ‘activity’ art, a juke box and a widescreen TV, pinboards for personal posters and pictures, bespoke furniture in the single rooms included overbed light canopies with colour-change lighting.

  • At the heart of every good hospital

  • Better spaces to get better in

  • Thanks to our involvement with Grosvenor Interiors and gifts from our generous supporters, Leicester Hospitals Charity has had a significant impact on patient environment within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. Several key areas inside our Hospitals have been given a “facelift” with the use of colour, design and bespoke furniture. We have formed a good working relationship with Grosvenor who have created quality branding and themes we are proud of and more importantly, have made a huge difference to our patients stay and well-being.
