When will acute mental health wards review restrictions?

When will acute mental health wards review restrictions?

My sister spend one year in an acute admissions ward during Covid-19 during this time. We noticed significant changes: - meetings with relatives have ceased which meant key people are removed from discussions, information and planning for discharge - patients are not encouraged anymore to cook their own breakfast or wash their own clothes, these skills and confidence are then impacted upon discharge - the requirements to isolate are beyond measures in other settings and is causing distress and loneliness - patients are not allowed to use a microwave to reheat food, so if relatives are supplying food due to dietary needs this has to be delivered warm each night My sister left unable to walk up her stairs or manage daily tasks.
