Staying in contact with loved ones at our hospitals

We've created some new graphics to help show what support is available to families with a loved one in hospital. 

We understand how difficult it can be for families to have a loved one in hospital at this time, particularly while we have visiting restrictions in place to help keep everyone safe from Covid-19. 

This is why Newham, Whipps Cross, St Bartholomew's and The Royal London have created family contact centres to help families keep in touch with loved ones. The centres are a key point of contact, to help ensure families are supported and updated about their relatives’ condition and wellbeing. 

Our family contact centres can help raise concerns and questions with clinical teams, as well as help with practical issues including arranging end of life visits, providing language support, offering spiritual and religious support, booking virtual visits and sending photos and messages to loved ones

To help families understand what support is in place, we have developed some graphics that can be shared on WhatsApp and other social media channels. You can download them below and help spread the word. 

The Royal London Hospital has also worked with community partners to produce videos in Bengali, Somali and English
