The main theme for March is hospital issues, services and support, including:

  • Guest speakers from Southmead Hospital and the Bristol Royal Infirmary, discussing topics including frailty, delirium, dementia, mental capacity and carers issues
  • Carers Support Centre Health Liaison Service, which offers support for carers in hospitals and through GP Practices
