A SCHEME is being developed to provide overnight accommodation for the relatives of people in Ludlow Hospital.

It is a project that is being explored by the Ludlow Hospital League of Friends.

At present there is a relative’s room but this is being taken a stage further with a plan for full overnight accommodation.

The facility would be available for close family of people whose condition is causing particular concern including those receiving palliative care.

There are a number of circumstances in which such accommodation might be used even though people who are in patients in Ludlow Hospital will not normally have conditions that are considered serious.
