Carers and Families

Carers and Families

‘‘We will make caring visible and valued by working with carers to share information and stories through our website and other media and to work with staff so they can get carers the information and support they need.’
Nottinghamshire Healthcare’s Carer’s Week Pledge for 2021

A carer is someone of any age who provides regular unpaid support to another person who could not manage without help. You may be a partner, friend, relative or neighbour or a young carer under the age of 18. Nottinghamshire Healthcare works in partnership with Trust staff and carers. By listening to and involving carers, we can provide better care for our patients and service users.
