Response from Dan Oliver, Public and Patient Experience Officer , Patient Experience Team, Derbyshire Community Health Services

Many thanks for your feedback. The reason that visiting is 3-4 is to allow patients to receive therapy, this is a major part of there treatment and care. The visiting times were agreed after consultation with patients.

However we are always happy to work with relatives and discuss any problems they may have. The person can discuss this issue with the Charge Nurse or ask to speak to me. We will always make every attempt to resolve such issues.
