Patients, Visitors & The Public

Family Support Team

Helping you stay in touch

We know it is a difficult time to have a family member/friend in hospital. Due to restricted visiting and the ward staff dealing with a high volume of calls we have introduced a new service enabling people to keep up to date with their loved one's condition during their stay in hospital.

If possible it is advised to bring a mobile phone for patients to keep in contact directly. If this is not possible the Family Support Team will be the link between patients and their loved ones. An email service has also been created where people can send a letter to be shared with patients.

To contact the team please email: coch.familysupportteam@nhs.net or call 01244363941.
