"Purse missing"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

My Mother was recently in ward 4A where the staff were great with her, but her purse containing £10 plus her jewelry went missing. As they were closed for Norovirus at the time, we are not sure when it disappeared. Patients should be told that they do not need any cash and not to hold valuables in there handbags. I informed Doctor and Nurses but they did not come back to us.
