It can be hard if you need to travel a long way from home for medical treatment, especially if you or your child has to stay at or close to the hospital for some time. It can also be very lonely if your family or your partner cannot be with you.

We understand that this can be a stressful time and that staying in a strange city can be a bit overwhelming.
