A new form that will allow carers to share information with staff about the person they are caring for is being rolled out across the Trust.
The Information Sharing Form for Carers was developed by a carer in Bolton who wanted to share their views and information with staff on a confidential basis.
The form is already being used successfully by carers in Bolton and is now being promoted across the Trust.
Information carers share with us will help shape the decisions we make about the future care and treatment of our patients and service users. By providing us with their views we can get to know more about carers and take their needs into account when planning and delivering services.
You will be able to pick up the form from reception areas, outpatient clinics, wards/inpatient areas and from your Carer Champion or Care Coordinator.
The form is available now and can also be downloaded from the Carer Information pages on this site. Contact GMW’s Care Hub Lead, Tracy Collard, on telephone 0161 772 3935 or email email@example.com for more information about this form and the Trust’s work with carers.
