Families and carers

Welcome carer, family member or friend. You have probably come here 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 a friend.

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 response to this we have developed a carer awareness film, in partnership with carers and carer organisations. You can view this below, or see the full version of the video here.

Our pledge to carers

We made a pledge for Carers Week 2018 and we are committed to making it a reality.  We pledge to make sure carers know where to go for advice and information about caring.  We pledge to continue our plans to roll out the Triangle of Care to all our staff teams.  We will encourage carers and families using our services to be more aware of their own health and wellbeing whilst caring.  We will listen to what carers say and learn from their experiences to improve our services and share the information they need in a more user friendly and accessible way.
