"Hmm confidential I don't think so"

About: Good Hope Hospital

My elderly relative was in Good Hope for some time. Her immediate family raised some concerns in a letter. The consultant then saw fit to discuss the complaint which was confidential on the ward in front of visitors and patients! He informed family members that he would offer only a one line response to their concerns. This is not what I would expect from a fellow professional.

Dear Anonymous, I am very sorry to hear that your elderly relative and family had your complaint discussed whilst you were on the ward. I would be very happy to look into this as you say complaints are confidential. If you would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Iona Belgrove on 0121 424 0808. Kind regards Margaret Mitchell Deputy Head of Patient Services
