As reported by the Royal College of Nursing in their Article of the 13th April 2016 and in the BBC Radio Drive Time News on 30th March 2016 Patient Latest provides a FREE service allowing the patient, spouse, partner, next of kin, parent or authorised caregiver to provide their latest information, as often as is practical, about the patients situation. By providing this information securely, all of your invited ‘special people’ can exclusively access your updates and leave messages of support which the patient can read. This keeps your hand picked people updated and in contact as well as saving everyone a great deal of time, effort and money trying to find out how you are doing. Hopefully using our free service will help reduce worry for all concerned by keeping everyone you have invited connected and informed.

If you are a patient, spouse, partner, next of kin, loved one or the care giver for someone who is sick or injured or someone in receipt of care you’ll find there are numerous family members, relatives, friends, neighbours, co-workers and others who want to know how you are. (These people are generally the patient’s or care receivers loved one’s and special people). The patient or care receiver may be in a hospital or residential nursing home, a care facility or even in their own home, but they need plenty of time for rest and peace and quiet. Using Patient Latest can help you avoid unnecessary worry by keeping the people you care about informed and connected.
For many patients making and taking phone calls all day simply isn’t possible or a realistic option. For their spouse, partner or next of kin taking and making phone calls, emailing and texting can become overwhelming especially if they are making regular visits too.
Obviously you are still free to phone and text who you wish. Our service is a valuable additional private contact method. You can access us using a smart phone and Internet which all hospitals have access to. It isn’t always possible to get a signal to make a phone call or make a text whilst in a hospital. You don’t always have privacy on a ward to make or take a call.
With Patient Latest you can save the time it would take to contact all of your special people such as family, relatives, friends, neighbours, co workers, simply by sending one message which would be sent out to everyone you want to be informed of your latest situation. You decide and invite who you want to exclusively allow access to your latest situation information. The patient, care receiver or authorised representative is in full control. You control who you allow exclusive access to your updates.
Not only are you saving time and money but you are also helping to save care givers time. Sometimes they take and reply to daily phone enquiries about their patients or care receivers, taking several calls a day and repeating the same information to people over and over again which takes up valuable caring time.
Activate your private personal secure update area and type in your latest situation to keep loved one’s or special people up to date with your situation.
That’s all there is to it.
