Fisher House is a ‘home away from home’ for military patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and their loved ones.
This means that when military patients are being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, their families can stay at Fisher House.
Due to the world class care carried out at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and the lessons learnt from the battlefield, servicemen and women often survive injuries today that they would have died from just a few years ago. But injuries sustained can be life-changing, and for their families, the knock at the door is something they dread.
When we speak to the families of injured servicepeople, they tell us that when they hear their loved one is injured they just want to get to Birmingham as soon as possible, without any thought about where they will stay when they get there. Fisher House is here for them: a ‘home away from home’ within walking distance of the hospital, providing a safe space for families to adjust and recover during this difficult time.
