Northampton General Hospital Start New Letter System For Loved Ones of Patients
Written by Newsteam on April 14, 2020
Starting Tuesday the 14th of April, relatives of patients at Northampton General Hospital can send letters and/or photos to their loved ones in hospital via email. This comes after the NGH had to reduce visiting hours of family members into wards due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
If you have a family member at NGH, you can send a letter to [email protected]. Just make sure to include your relatives full name and which ward they are on to make sure your Email is received.
The service will run Monday to Friday, with all Emails received before 3pm arriving to the patient the same day. Any Emails that arrive after the 3pm deadline will be delivered the following day. Any letters received after 12pm on Fridays may not reach your family member in time for the weekend, so could be delivered the following Monday.
During our current isolation, this service not only gives patients of NGH something to look forward to, but also connects them with family members that they may not have been able to see for quite a while.
