Caring for someone in hospital?

Caring for someone who is now in Lincoln, Grantham, Louth or Pilgrim hospital?

Carers Badge

The badge recognises that as a carer you should be considered as an expert and equal partner and we (ULHT hospital staff) need to work with you to achieve this.

Having a ULHT carer’s badge on its distinctive orange lanyard means you will be visible and recognised for the incredibly important role you play. You will be allowed free visiting on the ward and we will work with you to agree the level of input you want to retain during the hospital stay and not make assumptions or take advantage of you!

If you would like to find out more then pop down to our PALS office or speak to a member of staff as someone from PALS may be able to pop up and see you and we can take it from there.
