"Compass Worker- Broxtowe (Sheila Gibson Unit)"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Mental Health Services for Older People – Community (City)

(as a carer),

I was attending a carers group in Stapelford; which takes place on a monthly basis, I am a carer myself for my husband. Another carer who was present was telling the group how much he valued the support he was getting from the Compass Worker from Sheila Gibson Unit, how much a different it was waking just in the short while that she had been supporting him he already could feel the different.

Alot of people in the group questioned why they wasnt able to access this resource/support..... Something the facilitated tried to answer through referral.
