We work in the Outpatients Department at The Walton Centre and know how amazing this hospital is!

Our Home from Home Accommodation has been provided by the hospital charity, for relatives who need somewhere to stay after a patient has been admitted for urgent treatment.

There are eight ensuite bedrooms including two larger rooms which are suitable for families and for those with a disability. The Fairclough Family room offers sofas, TV and a kitchenette and dining area; and there is a quiet room for anyone who would like a private space to relax. There is a laundry, fully equipped for washing and drying; and free wifi for easy internet access.

The Home from Home is provided free to families who need it, thanks to our charity supporters. It costs approximately £50,000 per year to run the unit, with an average of £20 per night per room. Our target is £400 which will provide 7 families with 3 nights stay each.
