We have been working alongside North Bristol NHS Trust to agree a deal with Southmead Hospital, as a result all unpaid carers can now park for free in the car park and can apply for a card that will allow them access to the ward and the staff canteen.
The Carers Support Scheme was developed to make visiting the person you care for in hospital, a little easier.
Kate Sykes, one of our Hospital Carers Liaison Workers, said:
“These concessions for carers acknowledge the invaluable work that carers do in supporting the person they care for in the ward environment.”
