Welcome to carers, family members and friends. You have probably come to this page because you are looking for helpful information. You will be giving unpaid practical and emotional support to a person who receives services from our Trust. You may be a partner, friend, relative or neighbour or a young carer under the age of 18, providing support to a parent, brother or sister, grandparent or other relative or friend.
If you are a carer, family or friend and need support and information please look at the Support and Information pages.
If you are a carer, family member or friend of a patient at Rampton Hospital, look at the Family and Carer Support pages of this site for information developed specifically for you.
The Trust is a member of The Triangle of Care. One of the six elements of this is that staff are ‘carer aware’ and trained in carer engagement strategies.
In March 2019 the Trust won a Patient Experience Network National Award for our work to involve and support carers in the 'Support for Caregivers, Friends and Family category. You can find out more here.
Nottinghamshire Healthcare is working hard to support carers and to make caring more visible.
'We will make caring visible by promoting carers’ stories, contributions and issues and identify and support our staff who are carers through the Employers for Carers - Carer Confident scheme.’
The Carer Confident benchmarking scheme supports employers to build a positive and inclusive workplace for staff
