Carer Friendly Pharmacy
Family Carer Champions currently exist or are being recruited in stores, and within teams. These Champions have a role helping all the staff in their area to remain focused on family carers, raise awareness of family carers, and promote their needs and family centred care, be a point of contact for the staff and family carer, and signpost to carer support services, keep themselves and others updated and assist in identifying and share information, and promote the giving out of information. They can also raise awareness of Suffolk Family Carers website for carer support.
The resources needed to become a Family Carer Champion and Carer Friendly Pharmacy can be found on our HLP Resources page.
