Message from Hugo PIKE - firstname.lastname@example.org
At his wife's request I am forwarding this email to let you know that Malcolm suffered a massive stroke some weeks ago. Following initial treatment at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton he was transferred to the cottage hospital in Williton for physiotherapy and care. To date his recovery has been very slow and even now he cannot communicate.
He requires 24/7 care and cannot safely be left alone. So far visiting has been limited to Barbara and the family and I have agreed to be their point of contact for the time being. We will review the situation after Christmas.
06/01/20 - Unfortunately Malcolm has not benefited from any improvement in his condition and remains at Williton Hospital. Immediate family visitors only and the contact remains Hugo PIKE.
