Information for carers
Here are a few links to useful information for patient carers and families.
We’re proud to support John’s Campaign, which is a national campaign supporting the rights of carers to stay with their loved ones in hospital, it is for patients with dementia or similar conditions that may make them vulnerable or at risk of decline without their carer being present. This can be to support with personal care, nutritional intake and for comfort. It is promoting and welcoming partnership working with carers and families in care planning and delivery.
If you are the main carer of a loved one that is in hospital with us, you are entitled to:
- Open visiting- on ward manager discretion
- Free parking
- 20% off food in the restaurant
In order to access the above benefits main Carers are invited to apply for a Carers Passport. Please speak to the Ward Manager or the Admiral Nurse team for more information.
