During this time of visiting restrictions, we have introduced "Letters To Loved Ones" at UCLH.

Having to suspend visitors in all but exceptional circumstances was one of the hardest things we have had to do. We know how much it means to patients when they receive messages from their friends and family. “Letters To Loved Ones" is one of the ways that we are helping to keep patients in touch with their family and friends during this difficult time. 

If you want to send your loved one a message or letter on a ward in one of our hospitals, just email your message to . You may also want to attach a photograph or picture if you wish. We kindly ask that you try and keep your letter to no more than two pages and to not include more than three photos or images per message.

We will then print your message or letter and deliver it to your loved one on the ward with any photos you may have attached.

Remember to include your loved one's full name, date of birth, ward they are on (if known), and any special requirements (for example large print).
