If you are travelling a long distance, you may also require accommodation near to the hospital. Some hospitals provide accommodation on their premises (for which there may be a small charge). They are also usually able to provide a list of B&Bs or hotels within the vicinity.
The Ward Manager or receptionist within the hospital that you are visiting should be able to provide you with the relevant information or direct you to the appropriate member of staff who can help you.
A list of local accommodation can be found under Useful Information
