Exclusive: Plastic spouted beakers 'infantilise' patients


I can 't thank you enough for bringing this issue to the fore. As with most things to do with 'hydration care' it opens up so many wider issues related to older care, dignity and time to care... being repeated concerns. I completely agree with key points in the article. As Chair of the National Hydration Network - this is something we can ensure stays on the agenda and lobby for specific research into this area. I'm not a very active tweeter - but I will make a point of going to your # and spreading the word. Very best wishes to everyone involved in this article.
