Response from St Martins Hospital

Hi Dan, thank you for raising this matter and I am very sorry to hear you feel you have been prevented from seeing your uncle. We do seek to ensure that visitors are able to see their relatives when they are in-patients although sometimes restrictions can be necessary to ensure a safe and therapeutic environment. Could I ask that you contact either the ward manager, Lisa Medhurst, or Maria Stafford, Matron, on 01227 459371 to see what can be done to enable you to visit? Alternatively if you contact the patient experience team at patientexperience@kmpt.nhs.uk then they can help you to see your uncle.
