Carers

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.
