Keep in touch with family
Wirral University Teaching hospital (WUTH) has launched a Family Support Team to help patients and their families stay in contact with each other or provide emotional support to family members. We also provide an after-care service for bereaved should it be required for families.
Our team of staff will be supporting relatives, offering updates about the hospital or sign posting to other areas externally, including current guidance on COVID-19 or relevant helplines.
The team will also be able to share messages to and from patients and their loved ones.
We offer an email service contact, which includes the facility to print off keepsakes such as children’s drawings, photographs etc, telephone contact through our helplines.
There is also a facility to record video messages to share with a patient from families and vice versa.
This is a seven day service operating from 8.30am – 5.00pm.
