Response from Julie Pearce, Chief Nurse + Director of Quality + Operations, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for your feedback, please may I assure you that the WHH has not been closed to admissions. I hope your mother in law is improving but if she is not please do go through the 111 service for advice about how to access care.
