This new ward sounds as if nhs moving with the times. Continuity, in/day unit side by side, dedicated staff trained to cancer care standards, open visiting, tranquil garden area, doctors on tap, nurses self motivated to degree standards, rotation between ward and day unit perfect for patient and family setting. Oops sorry that's what they have already
