Additional information: Key Contact
Good communication is very important to everyone: the patient, the family carer, relatives, friends and the nursing team. We would therefore be grateful if, with the permission of the patient, one person such as the family carer or a relative or friend becomes the 'key contact' to enquire about the patient's progress and then passes this information on to others who may be concerned.

All other information can be found in the 'Staying as an Inpatient' booklet.
