We value carers and the support they give the person they’re caring for while they’re in hospital and do everything we can to ensure that they can continue to do so. The many ways we do this have been recognised by Caring Together, a charity supporting carers in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, who awarded us their Carer Friendly Tick Award.
We make sure that carers’ voices are heard so we can better understand their experiences and how we can best provide support.
Our Patient Engagement and Experience team works in partnership with carers to support the people they’re caring for. If you’re a carer yourself, we’d love to hear about your experiences of our hospital so we can identify what works well for you and any additional support we could give to help you access our services. Please get in touch via our Carers Forum, by emailing (Patient.Experience@nnuh.nhs.uk), or by calling 01603 288 295 (please leave your name and telephone number if the phone goes to answer phone).
