This relatively new building type consists of accommodation and facilities for family lodging in association with the surrounding hospitals in particular the Manor Hospital on Pleck Road. Other residents could include patients from wards or departments within the hospital who are able to take care of themselves e.g. cancer patients and physiotherapy patients who require daily treatment and even patients staying before or after an operation or procedure.
