Covid 19 Update

In the effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 and comply with Government recommendations, The Gloucestershire Carers Hub Office will remain closed.

However, our communication channels remain open, though for the safety of Carers and our staff at this current time we are not able to provide face to face services. We are still available to offer support to Carers during our normal opening hours Monday to Friday, by providing information, advice and guidance over the phone and through our website, email and social media.

    Hospitals

    Gloucestershire Carers Hub has a team of Hospital Liaison Workers who work at the both the main and community Hospitals across the county.

    Anyone can make a referral to our team, including hospital health professionals, GPs, social workers, Carers or family members. Please ensure that you obtain the consent of the Carer before you contact us with their details, as we cannot follow up a referral without this.

    Our workers can:

    • provide help, support and advice to carers through their hospital journey as a Carer and/ or patient, working directly on hospital wards.
    • liaise between the discharge team, busy ward staff and a carer and their family.
    • support staff to implement the Carers Charter that your Trust has signed up for.
    • support staff in their ‘partners in care’ work.
    • provide Carer awareness training to staff.
