I am an unpaid carer. What support and information is available to me?
Whether you have recently become a carer or you have been caring for some time, there may be questions you have, resources you need and support and information you could benefit from. These carer support organisations can assist with all the issues that come with being an unpaid carer. Assistance is available irrespective of your financial situation, your needs, the patient’s condition or where you live.
Carers support representatives regularly visit East Surrey Hospital. If you would like to speak to someone please give your contact details to the ward manager or contact the representative directly.
