Messages to patients staying on our In-patient Unit
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic we are aware many friends and family members may not be able to visit their loved ones while they are staying in our In-patient Unit. So that family and friends can continue to communicate with patients we have set up a dedicated email address where you can send your a message, attach a photograph or this let your loved one know you are thinking of them. To send your message please include the patient name, your name and message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this is a no reply email address, you will only receive a automated response. Emails will be monitored Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. If messages are received outside of these hours they will be passed on at the first opportunity.
Many thanks for your support with these measures.
