Information for carers, families and significant others

We offer support to carers, family members and significant others of patients accessing our services at the Bracton Centre and Memorial Hospital.

Carers' assessment

We also offer carers, families and significant others a 'carers assessment' during their relatives stay. This is to support and recognise their role as a carer. Please click here if you have not been offered a carers assessment and wish to request one. Alternately call or text the carers' line on 07748650069.

Carers' forum

We are committed to working with carers, families and significant others, to provide specialist support and advice when needed. We have set up a carers' forum, which offers a place to meet with other carers on monthly basis. It's here you can discuss any issues or questions you may have with a professional, whilst being supported by other carers in a group setting. This is a great opportunity for carers who may feel isolated or stressed to access support. We understand that travelling can be expensive for some, so we offer to cover travel expenses to our carers. 

Please click here, if you are interested in joining our forum or to find out more information.

The Forum takes place between 5.30 - 7pm at:

The Greenwich Carers Centre, The Stables, 76 Hornfair Road, Charlton SE7 7BD
