"Communication - Sorry what?"

About: King's Mill Hospital

I had a telephone call today from an OT at KMH asking if I had any concerns about my Mother going home.

I'm sorry, what, are you telling me she is in hospital?

Apparently she was admitted last Thursday and the first contact I had from them was today; and that wasn't even Ward Staff but an OT asking about going home.

Exceptional example of good communication and involving family KMH - Well done!
