"Our family member's care at Rampton"

About: Rampton Hospital

(as a relative),

Our family were delighted to be informed that Patient A had arrived at The Medium Secure Hospital (in another county) and speaking to him yesterday he is settling in well.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to you for your support in initiating and for arranging Patient A’s transfer from Rampton, knowing the many hurdles that had to be cleared in gaining the final approval. While he clearly did not need the high security of Rampton, once moved from the reception wards, his quality of life and care was the best he'd had over the many years he has spent sadly institutionalised; notably the recent years spent in Ward B.

Sadly his move has removed him further from family, but we fully acknowledge moving to The Medium Secure Hospital is in Patient A’s best interest and I look forward to visiting him once he has settled in.

Please extend our thanks to all staff involved with Patient A at Rampton Hospital.

Best wishes on behalf of Patient A and his family.

Thank you for your posting about Patient A, we are delighted to hear that Patient A is now settled at the Medium Secure Hospital.

We really appreciate your feedback as staff will be pleased to hear that they made a difference.

It is unfortunate that the move means Patient A is further away from his family, but agree that a move to Medium Security is a positive step for a patient, and it is great to see the family continue to offer support. I would like to wish Patient A all the best in the future.
