"Visiting hours were varied so we could visit"

About: St Cadocs Hospital / Mental Illness

(as a relative),

A million thanks to Nurse Scott for allowing the standard visiting hours to be varied to enable my husband and I to visit our nephew whilst he was in the care of Adferiad.

We live a good 200 miles from the unit which made visiting within the usual hours very difficult. We have heard so many nightmare stories about the care of the mentally ill in the past, we were so relieved to find that our reality was so much better.

Response from Julian Hayman, Internal Communications Manager, Communications, Aneurin Bevan Health Board

Hello 'Anselm 1',

Thank you for your kind comments about your nephew's care and taking the time to feedback to us via the Patient Opinion website.

I will ensure that these comments are passed on to Nurse Scott and his manager.

Best wishes,
