We are running a new series of courses for carers, family members and friends of patients resident at Rampton Hospital.
The four sessions have been developed with the Trust’s Recovery College and have been co-designed with some of our current carers. They have been developed to aid carers, in particular those who have just started visiting the Hospital, to increase understanding about the Hospital, why patients are admitted here, what we do to help and how you as a carer, friend or relative, can be involved.
Sessions are held on a Saturday morning at the Mike Harris Learning and Development Centre from 10:45am to 1pm. The sessions are spaced out over a couple of months to help fit in with your life and possible visiting times.
