On the 16th March 1988, the Duchess of Kent opens a new Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at Bristol Children's Hospital, one of the first in the country. The Unit featured four high-dependency isolation cubicles equipped with specialist air filters and televisions to keep children entertained.

After the visit the Palace said...'Her Royal Highness was especially pleased to have partaken in the official opening of the new Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and to have seen for herself the happy atmosphere created between the children and the hospital staff in the new wing.'
