In hospitals, we want to ensure family carers needs are met alongside that of the patient. We have support workers based in Ipswich Hospital, West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds and at James Paget Hospital.

We are there providing face-to-face support during admission and discharge of the person you look after. We also help if you have been admitted yourself and are worried about your caring role when you get home.

Ipswich Hospital Carers Cabin

The cabin based near the Garrett Anderson Centre is there so family carers can get some information they need or to have a break away from the hospital environment. The Cabin is run by Ipswich Hospital volunteers. Pop in and say hello.
