Carers Hub at Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Carers Hub at Stoke Mandeville Hospital
 
A ‘Carers Hub’ at Stoke Mandeville Hospital provides expert advice and support to carers in need of practical and emotional support.
As part of a joint initiative between Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust and the charity Carers Bucks, relatives of long-term sick or disabled patients will be offered the chance to meet with a dedicated expert to obtain anything from practical support, advice on legal matters or a space to reflect on the emotional impact of caring for a loved one.
 
This can include:
  • Up-to-date information and advice about carers’ issues
  • Help with knowing rights and entitlements
  • Help in putting together an emergency plan in case the carer is temporarily unable to fulfil the role
  • Somebody to talk to in confidence who understands their situation
  • Guidance on health and social care services
 
The hub offers a safe and welcoming environment and can be found between Wards 8 & 9 on the second floor of Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
 Relatives who feel they would benefit from the support on offer from Carers Bucks are asked to make an appointment in advance by contacting:
 Carol Aspinall, Carers Hub Co-ordinator by phone: 07496 724637, or by email: carol.aspinall@carersbucks.org
