My son David has been booked in at University College Hospital, London for a biopsy on 10 September. There are noP1010002 facilities for me to sleep over, neither do they provide hostel accommodation, they recommended I find a local b & b or hotel.

They suggested I look one up on Google, but I thought I would ask here too. I also need car parking facilities, I have to drive David home as his face will be swollen after the op and he was sick on the journey home last time he had this done. The hospital is in Euston Road and I would be very grateful for any recommendations.

It is hoped the biopsy will give David’s consultant an idea about different drugs or treatment for his chronic osteomyelitis. His consultant says the hospital has world-class microbiologists, we have to place our faith in them.

The good news for David is that he has his first driving lesson next week. He can’t wait.
