Experience of visits

Experience of Visits

Visiting their relative or friend in forensic settings was identified by forensic carers as an important part of the support for carers.  There were issues for forensic carers around the level of support and contact readily accessible when visiting someone in secure hospitals or units, often a considerable distance from their home.  In the survey, around half of respondents had experienced challenges in terms of travelling to and from hospital to visit their relative or friend, and 44% had experienced difficulties with being able to visit when it suited them.
