Speaking to the Daily Mirror, a source close to the family said: 'One of the letters, which is the longest, deals with the hospital and is critical in its tone.
'Within the letter, Jacintha calls into question some of the treatment she received at the hospital.'

King Edward VII Hospital stressed Jacintha Saldanha was not subject to any disciplinary procedure and that there had been no criticism of her.
It added: "Following the hoax call, hospital management offered her their support and told her that they considered her the victim of a cruel hoax. They stood by her actions, and made it clear there was no criticism of her, and that there would be no disciplinary action of any kind."
"One note apparently deals with the hoax call from the 2Day FM DJs, another details her requests for her funeral, and the third addresses her employers, the hospital, and contains criticism of staff there, according to the Guardian, who say they have spoken with two separate sources."
"That is why her suicide is very suspicious," says an Abu Dhabi-based nurse.
"A source writing to The Slog suggests that it wasn't a suicide note."
Nurse Saldhana suicide: friends and relatives dispute official version ...
Chris Spivey writes on his blog:
"Jacintha Saldanha was found alive and conscious....
"Then we are told that she did actually leave a suicide note (or notes).
"Jacintha was not humiliated in the prank call... The Australian, playing the role of the Queen (Very unconvincingly) said 'Oh Hello, can I speak to my Granddaughter Kate please'.
"'Who's calling?' would still have been appropriate.
"Strange then, that Jacintha - without hesitation or query - immediately transferred the call...
"In any event, I am .... sure that Jacintha would have been briefed about how to handle calls for Kate."

And she left a suicide note, reportedly...

Just as the shock waves have dissolved, following the hospital 'prank'.
Just who, exactly, gave these DJ's 'the number' to call, and who exactly, are the owners of this radio station?
"The whole Suicide Nurse/Prank Call debacle stinks to high-heaven and NOT ONE news outlet/journo has questioned the statistical fact that women, never mind women who work in the medical field, rarely commit suicide by hanging - it's men that hang themselves (excuse the explicit nature of my comment but the truth must be stated)
"It is highly unlikely, improbable, and, statistically untenable, that a nurse with two children would do this to herself, for no other reason other than she thought she was in trouble with her job and was embarassed...
"She either had psychological problems to begin with OR someone killed her - it's as simple as that.
"It is bizarre fantasy to say she was so upset over the radio prank that she killed herself over it. Everyone knows this, yet no one is saying a word.
"Clearly there is a cover up which is being nicely done with the use of thousands of tax payer pounds - What a parade, the children of the deceased being dragged around London yesterday in full view of the world's media! It's a sick joke!
"The reasons for her death are far from clear - but what a lovely 'bloody' way to announce to the world the coming heir to the throne!
Jacintha Saldanha's mother-in-law, Carmine Barboza: 'Benedict used to call every day but neither he nor Jacintha said anything about what had happened. Everything seemed normal.'
Police said the death was being treated as "unexplained",
The relatives of nurse Jacintha Saldanha have revealed that she told no one in the family about the prank call that has been blamed for driving her to suicide.
Jacintha Saldanha's family says she told them nothing about hoax ...
"Benedict used to call every day but neither he nor Jacintha said anything about what had happened. Everything seemed normal," said Carmine Barboza, 69.
"We spoke to Benedict again this morning, and he said he hasn't been allowed to see her body yet because of legal formalities and she'll not be handed over before Monday."
The recording in full:
Michael Christian: Now Mel, today is a very special day, it’s the day a lot of people have been waiting for for a very, very long time.
Mel Greig: There has been speculation for months that Kate Middleton, married to Prince William, is pregnant. And it has been confirmed that she is pregnant, she is in hospital with severe morning sickness, poor little dear.
Christian: The thing is, though, that this condition that she has is often attached to women that are having twins, so maybe not one but two royal babies.
Greig: I would rather pump out a couple at a time. Makes it easier I think.
Christian: You make it sound so special and emotional. (does an impression of Greig) I’d rather pump out a couple, that’d be all right wouldn’t it? (Laughter) Have someone in the corner of the room with a baseball mit, catching them. Pump it out.
Christian: Here’s the thing. We’ve been handed a phone number and we have been told that this phone number is the hospital where Kate Middleton is currently staying. We thought we’d give it a call. We don’t want to cause any trouble, we don’t want to stress her out because she is doing it tough. But I reckon we could maybe get her on the radio tonight.
Mel Greig: Look, I don’t know. I mean everybody will be trying this.
Christian: Well, this is why I’ve thought of a plan. We can’t just ring up and go ‘Hi it’s MC and Mel from the Summer30, can we chat to Kate?’ Hang up. Not gonna happen. You are going to be the Queen...
Greig: This is awesome.
Christian: I’m going to be Prince Charles.
Greig (Queen voice): Hello, I’m the Queen.
Christian: Ben and Em (off microphone) so you’re involved in this as well, we thought that maybe you could be the royal corgis, if you’re OK with that?
Em: over intercom: Sure we’ll pop on in, in a sec.
Christian: I’m going to dial this number.
Greig: This is fun, I mean (adopts Queen voice), this is fun.
Christian: So you’re going to be the Queen.
Greig: Hello, I’m the Queen.
Christian (in a Prince Charles voice): Hello. Prince Charles over here, mummy.
Greig: Oh, you’re Prince Charles, I like your ears.
Christian: Let’s give this hospital a call and see if we can get Kate Middleton or maybe even Prince Wills on the phone tonight. So the number is going in ... oh Jeez, I hope this happens.
Receptionist: Hello, good morning, King Edward VII Hospital.
Greig (Queen voice): Oh hello there, could I please speak to Kate please, my granddaughter.
Receptionist: Oh yes, just hold on ma’am.
Greig: Thank you.
Christian: Are they putting us through?
Christian: If this has worked, it’s the easiest prank call we have ever made. Your accent sucked, by the way, I just want you to know.
Greig: I’m not used to playing 80-year-olds. (Phone connects) Kate, my darling, are you there?
Nurse: Good morning, ma’am, this is the nurses station, how may I help you?
Greig: Hello, I’m just after my granddaughter Kate. I wanted to see how her little tummy bug is going.
Nurse: She’s sleeping at the moment and has had an uneventful night, and sleep is good for her, as we speak. She’s been given some fluids to re-hydrate her because she was quite dehydrated when she came in. But she’s stable at the moment.
Greig: OK. Well, I’ll just feed my little corgis then (barking in the background). So when is a good time to come and visit her? Because I’m the Queen so I’ll need a lift down there. Charles! When can you take me to the hospital, Charles?
Christian (pretending to be Prince Charles): When will it be all right to come down and see her? Maybe in the morning or something? If that’s OK?
Nurse: I would suggest that any time after nine o’clock would be suitable, because the doctor will be in in the morning and we’ll just be getting her freshened up in the morning. I would think any time after nine.
Christian: Wonderful. Is Wills still there or has he gone home? I haven’t spoken to him yet.
Nurse: He went home at about half past nine last night. Actually, probably about nine o’ clock last night.
Christian: OK, Lovely. But they’re all OK, everything’s all right?
Nurse: Yes, she’s quite stable at the moment. She hasn’t had any retching with me since I’ve been on duty. And she has been sleeping on and off.
Nurse: I think it’s difficult sleeping in a strange bed as well.
Christian: Yes, of course, it’s hardly the palace, is it!
Greig: It’s nothing like the palace is it, Charles? Oh, when are you going to walk those bloody corgis?
Christian: Mumsy, I’ll go and take the dogs outside.
Greig: I need to go and visit Kate in the morning. My dear, thank you so much.
Nurse: You’re very welcome.
Greig: Thank you, bye.
Greig: She was giving us real information!
Christian (as Prince Charles): Mumsy, I think that they believed everything we said.
Greig: I am the Queen: bow for me, bow for me.
Christian: Bow for you and your terrible accent.
