New hospital liaison service for carers

18th February 2021, 1:45pm | By catherinerussell |

Carer Support Wiltshire have launched a new Carer Support Hospital Liaison Service that will support carers who have a loved one in hospital.

The service will run until the end of April at Great Western, Royal United and Salisbury District Hospitals, as well as the community hospitals.

Kerry McNally is the Hospital Liaison Project Lead. She said: β€œThis new service will support unpaid carers while the person they care for is in hospital and assist with planning and implementation of discharge, as well as following up with them after discharge to see how things are going.

β€œThe aim of the service is to reduce carer stress, reduce re-admission rates and ease the burden on hospitals at this time, while the Covid pandemic is placing increased demands on the NHS.”

If you are a carer and need to contact the Hospital Liaison Team, please call us on 0800 368 7579.
