Teenage and young adult

The Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) Team at Oxford University Hospitals provides a service to teenagers and young adults aged 16-24 years, living in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire or Wiltshire, who have been diagnosed with cancer.

The TYA team is a dedicated group of professionals comprising:

  • nurses
  • youth workers
  • clinical psychologists
  • doctors
  • social workers.

The TYA team works alongside the young person's medical and nursing teams, who manage their treatment, to give them extra care and support.

They provide care that extends beyond the direct focus of the young person's treatment, providing a range of cognitive, recreational and social activities in order to help them deal with their diagnosis and treatment and allow them to continue to develop as a young person.
