New resources for healthcare professionals to identify and support unpaid carers at hospital discharge launched

Carer Aware, a partnership between Carers Trust Wales and Carers Wales funded by Welsh Government, has launched resources aimed at healthcare professionals involved in the hospital discharge process with the aim of improving support for unpaid carers.

These include:

Our short guide includes guidance on identifying and communicating with unpaid carers, gives hints and tips, and outlines some swift actions to become more Carer Aware as part of the hospital discharge or transfer process.

The longer service guide highlights the cross-over between being Carer Aware as part of hospital discharge and current Welsh Government and NHS Wales guidance, such as D2RA and SAFER. It sets out carers rights and how health boards and service planners can develop integrated services that enable unpaid carers to realise their rights.

Both guides have been co-produced with unpaid carers, healthcare professionals from across Wales and local carer services from the Carers Trust Network with an expertise in supporting unpaid carers in hospital settings.
