A carer is anyone who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.

At Lancashire Teaching Hospitals we welcome and value the important support carers provide for their loved ones, and we also appreciate that you know the patient best and we want to ensure we provide the best care and experience possible so we are committed to working with you.

Our commitment is listed in our Carers Charter.

And to ensure we try and make your visit as easy as possible we have also put in place our Carers Lanyards, put up beds and a Carers Forum which offers support and guidance from staff and other carers and covers services both inside the hospital and within the community.
