To allow us to support other NHS Trusts in the region at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Children’s Hospital increased its intensive care capacity in order to treat more of the sickest children from across the Midlands. However, this meant worried parents travelling further from their homes to be with their children.

Rather than face arduous journeys to and from our Children’s Hospital, we secured funds from NHS Charities Together, as well as generous contributions from a number of charitable trusts and foundations, to provide overnight accommodation in local hotels and apartments.
