About the project
Here you can explore the wards at the Leeds Children’s Hospital and meet the team. Some of the films are made by young people and their families, some films will also give feedback about experience from children or young people in hospital. If you would like to see the ward that either you or your child will be visiting then click the corresponding ward. You will also be able to meet the staff you are likely to meet during your stay.
If you have any concerns or need to speak to someone about an imminent stay/visit then feel free to call
Leeds General Infirmary 0113 243 2799 and ask for the ward you need.

The Media company ‘Mosaic North Ltd’ has over the last fifteen years established itself as a provider of specialist film making predominantly within health settings. It has developed a unique method of working with and alongside service users and stakeholders utilising a mix of documentary film and video diary work.
One of the major projects that Mosaic North Ltd has developed and managed is jtvcancersupport.com a project working directly with young people that brings insight into the world of teenagers and young adults with cancer. This project has been running for nine years and now boasts over 2,000 short films/animations and thousands of online viewers. The project has now been adopted by every major cancer treatment centre in the UK, and is in development in the US and Australia. On-going qualitative and quantitative research and regular evaluation of the work (available on request) confirm that the films are watched by significant numbers of young people with cancer, their families and friends. The process of film making and watching others experiences have a positive emotional impact on those involved with the project. In addition to this, content from the site is now regularly used by professionals to gain insight and understanding in respect of their patients; is advocated as a reference for University courses (Coventry) and used as a teaching aid by those lecturing about the subject.
Teenage Cancer Trust are the main funders of this project and website and ‘jimmyteens’ is an integral part of the service they offer to young people affected by cancer.
