Support and Information


We promote an environment where carers are recognised and supported. We all encourage carers to speak to our staff about how we can best work with you in the care and treatment of your loved one.

Carer's Passport

Our carer's passport is for identified carers of patients under our care, as an in-patient or for day surgery. This document can be shown to staff to verify your role as carer. 

A staff member can provide you with a carer's passport.

John's campaign

We have signed up to the national 'John's campaign' which advocates carers staying with their loved ones in hospital. For more information, please visit the John's campaign website.
