Rough Guide to the BtG POD:
The BtG POD is a VIP type lounge within Noble’s Hospital for young adult patients with long term health needs (16 – 24 years, born in or after 1994).
Those patients wishing to access the BtG POD will need prior permission from their ward medical team. Once permission has been given, nursing staff will arrange access to the BtG POD via Nobles Switchboard.
Please note the Pod was opened on 9th November 2018 and we are currently developing the service and recruiting volunteers to enable access so availability is limited at present (updated 12th December 2018)
Rough Guide to hospital based youth worker support:
Youth support is available each weekday – at present 11am – 1pm – this website will be updated as the service grows.
A BtG youth worker will phone or visit wards to meet patients and arrange POD access if required.
At other times (including over the Christmas period), contact with the youth worker can be made by hospital staff via Noble’s switchboard or by emailing email@example.com
Youth support is available to teenagers (14+) and young adults (born in or after 1994) with complex medical needs, receiving care on all wards at Noble’s Hospital.
With the permission of medical staff, young adults can meet with a youth worker in the quiet room in the BtG POD.
Outpatients can also arrange to meet with a youth worker as required.
