Families can now share letters and photos via email to their loved ones to help them stay in touch at community hospitals run by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust. The new email service has been launched in response to the coronavirus and social distancing guidance which means visitors are not permitted on wards to help protect vulnerable patients and those caring for them from the virus. Relatives and friends of patients on hospital wards can use the #LettersToLovedOnes service by email DCHST.letterstolovedones@nhs.net attaching a letter and photograph, including name, date of birth and their ward. See the DCHS website.
