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 or friend and need support and information please look at the Support and Information pages of this site

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.  

Our Carers Week Pledge 2019

Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust pledges that all our teams will connect carers and families to support, advice and information from our services and in our communities.

We expect every team in the Trust to:

  • improve how they support, involve and communicate with carers by meeting the six Triangle of Care standards
  • let carers know about organisations and information that can help them as carers in their local community
  • listen and respond to what carers have to say about our services
