The Ronald McDonald House at Oxford Children’s Hospital was the eleventh Ronald McDonald House to open in the UK, and the first House in the UK to be opened within the hospital building itself. The House is on the top floor of the Children’s hospital and offers 17 rooms where parents can get some much needed rest, reassured by the fact that they are under the same roof as their children. The House has everything a family could need in order to continue some semblance of normal life including kitchens, laundry facilities and a lounge area.
Oxford Children’s Hospital offers many regional and supra-regional specialist services and is the home to one of only four paediatric craniofacial services in the UK, meaning children and their families travel from all over the UK to receive vital care. For the family it can mean long drives, splitting the family unit or paying vast sums of money on hotel accommodation. That’s why the free service we provide is so vital to these families.
Despite the House looking after more than 6,000 families in the past ten years, the 17 bedrooms have never been enough to meet demand. With the good news that planning permission has been granted for a 62 bedroom House,(Wednesday 6 July 2016), the Charity will consider the next stages as a priority and will work with the hospital and partners over the funding and timing of the new development. Similar projects have been in the region of £10-£13 million.
There will be no charge to visit the exhibition but donations will be invited for the charity. www.rmhc.org.uk/oxford
