If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature or a new, continuous cough – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Young carers

We will ask you if you are a young carer. If we don't, please let us know.

We will advise you where to get help and support and tell you about your eligibility for a young carer's assessment.

If you are not sure whether what you do for someone at home or in your family makes you a young carer, you could fill in this questionnaire. If you are a young carer, you might be entitled to support.

 

Where can young carers get more help and support?

If you are a young carer and want to talk to someone, you can speak to any member of the ward team.  You can also contact our PALS team.
