Help in hospital


Do you ever need to accompany the person you care for to hospital?  There is information about support for carers who need to visit the
Great Western Hospital on its website.

It is important that you tell staff about your caring role when you visit.  This will enable them to support you whilst the person you care for is in hospital.  

It will also alert them to consider your needs when the person is discharged as they should not be discharged unless you feel able to cope once they return home.
