"Restrictive visiting hours mean I can't be involved"

The restricted visiting hours on Langtree Ward make it virtually impossible for visitors to attend.
One hour a day 7-8pm is not appropriate for older patients (particularly those with dementia) or for visitors who work.
I personally want to be involved in care and discharge planning and I'm finding this impossible with such restrictive visiting times. Please review the evidence base for your visiting times and consider person-centred open visiting.
