Do you have a friend or family member currently in hospital?

This new initiative from Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will help you get in touch by writing a letter.


We recognise that it is difficult for patients and their families whilst visiting is suspended and that not being able to talk to loved ones has been causing significant distress. To try and ease the current situation, we have set up an email address, for families to send messages to their loved ones while they are in our care.

Emails can be sent to where the Patient Experience Team will print them, pop them in an envelope and deliver them, along with the help of our volunteers. Please include the patients full name, date of birth and ward (if known)

Letters to loved ones will be delivered on the same day for patients at St James’s and LGI, if they are sent before 2pm.  Please allow 2 working days for delivery at Chapel Allerton and Wharfedale Hospitals

Please note we are only able to offer this service Monday-Friday at present. Letters sent after 2pm on Friday will be delivered on Monday.
