One of Solent NHS Trust’s priorities for 2012/13 is to improve support we provide to families and carers of those who are receiving care from our services. This is in recognition of the invaluable role that many families and carers play in supporting someone through illness and on the journey to recovery.
We recognise that being a carer can have a profound impact upon a person's life and many carers need support from services to enable them to continue to care for someone, but also to help maintain their own health and wellbeing. We are working towards a vision where all carers feel recognised for their invaluable role and, wherever possible, are involved as true partners in care.
Our Patient Experience Service would like to work closely with carers, hearing their views on our services and getting their opinions on how we could improve things. If you care for someone and have an experience you would like to share with us, please get in touch by writing to:
