How is the wife stopping you seeing him? Unless he is on a restricted ward, e.g. ICU/HDU, then there should be no issues regarding your visiting him unless it causes him distress.
Has the wife given any reason for stopping you seeing your brother?
Yes he is on an ICU and very poorly but the staff have said we can visit. It is just her that is stopping us and they have said they have to respect her decision. She has given no reason.
It is difficult; as next of kin, she can hold a certain sway; the other option is to apply to Court but this would be quite messy, and costly.
Sorry to not be more positive.
