Four-star hotels for cancer patients in London

A new four-star hotel has opened in the heart of London but it is only reserved for hospital patients.

The Cotton Rooms have been built for patients, many of whom are undergoing chemotherapy at University College London Hospital.

The 35-room purpose-built hotel, believed to be the first of its kind in the NHS, costs about £1m.

William Laughton, a resident, speaks about his experience while the chief executive of UCLH Charity Philip Brading and matron Alison Finch explained why it could be beneficial.
