Hospital has had 'regular contact' with late nurse's family

King Edward VII's Hospital said it was continuing to support Jacintha Saldanha's family in a "number of ways", but said it would be "inappropriate" to divulge details, while attacking reports of distance between the parties.

Contrary to many inaccurate reports, we have been in regular contact with them since shortly after Jacintha’s death a week ago, offering them whatever support we could and the opportunity to meet at any time. We can confirm that we met with the family earlier in the week, and answered all of their questions in full. The family asked that the contents of the meeting remain private.
