Strike action is taking place across our services from Saturday 24 February to Wednesday 28 February. We'll contact your directly if your or your child's care is affected. We're sorry for any distress that delays to your care may cause.

Staying overnight with your child

We understand that you may want to stay with or near your child when they are in hospital so most beds in Evelina London Children's Hospital have a pull-down adult bed next to them.

Alternatively you may be eligible to stay at the Ronald McDonald House.   

Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House provides a 'home away from home' for families whose children are being cared for at Evelina London Children's Hospital.

Gassiot House

If you're unable to stay in Ronald McDonald House, Gassiot House Lodge at St Thomas' Hospital has rooms which can be booked on a nightly basis.

Rooms with shared facilities are available to be booked on a nightly basis. They cost £75 per night for a room with a small double bed and £90 per night for a twin room with accessible facilities. Rooms with baby cots or family rooms with a single bed for children are available on request.

Other accommodation options

The Ronald McDonald House charity provides a few rooms for families to stay in on the first floor of Evelina London, which you may be eligible for. Ask your nurse for more information.

There are also lots of hotels around Waterloo and Westminster (for Evelina London and St Thomas' Hospital) and Southwark (for Guy's Hospital):

What if I can't stay?

Lots of parents have to work or have responsibilities at home that mean they can't stay with their child in hospital. You can call your child directly and your child's nurse can help them to phone you so that you can keep in touch. You can also call 020 7188 7188 and ask for your child's ward by name.
