The NHS Homestay Hub offers a private marketplace exclusively for employees, enabling them to connect with fellow colleagues who have spare rooms available for rent.

Seamless Room Rental Experience: The platform offers a request-based booking process, advanced search filters, and video messaging, making it effortless for employees to find suitable rooms within the NHS. Detailed listings provide comprehensive information on amenities, house rules, and preferences, enabling employees to make well-informed decisions when selecting their accommodation. Cost-Effective Housing Solution: Renting rooms from fellow employees presents significant cost savings compared to traditional accommodation options. The NHS Homestay Hub promotes affordable alternatives, allowing employees to find housing within their budget while reducing commuting time and expenses.

Yvonne Finlay, CEO of, expressed her excitement about the launch, stating, “We are thrilled to introduce the NHS Homestay Hub as a dedicated marketplace for employee-to-employee room rentals. Our Homestay Hub solution streamlines the housing search process, making it convenient and efficient for large organisations while fostering a strong sense of community among employees. We believe that this innovative approach will not only provide affordable accommodation options for NHS employees but also enable them to monetise their spare rooms during this challenging cost-of-living crisis. We are delighted to launch this initiative.”

Ian Burden, Head of Transformation at NHS England, enthusiastically commented on the initiative, saying, “Homestay has been a great support to the NHS by establishing a secure section of their platform where NHS members can rent rooms to fellow NHS members. This benefits us all, as staff can earn extra money under the Government’s ‘rent a room scheme,’ while also providing cost-effective accommodation for staff and students.”
