Extra support for families and carers

The families and carers of patients in the last days of life are being reminded of the support which is available to them from East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

A new poster called “how we can SUPPORT you” has been circulated to the wards to remind loved ones of the help which is available.

This includes space away from the bedside, parking permits, hot drinks and comfort packs if they are staying overnight, as well as information leaflets to help them understand what may happen.

It is hoped the graphics will encourage loved ones to ask if they need extra support while helping hospital staff to better meet the needs of families and carers.

The posters have been produced by ESNEFT’s Palliative Care team and copies will be handed out by our Butterfly Volunteers, who support end-of-life patients and their loved ones.
