Ronald McDonald House Evelina London is a purpose-built 59 bedroom Ronald McDonald House at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

The House is a free ‘home away from home’ for the families of children being treated at the Hospital. It has been developed with a significant contribution from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity provided the land. We already had a 20-bedroom House near London Bridge, our Guy’s and St Thomas’ House, but the number of families needing accommodation already far exceeded what we could offer.  The new House, which opened in December 2016, can accommodate three times the number of families who were accommodated in a year at the Guy’s and St Thomas’ House. The House is located just a five minute walk from the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, helping families to be as close as possible to their child.
