Please see extract below from the South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group Press release explaining how patients in Harleston benefitted from a training provided by Kate and Irene, two nurses providing free training to carers, at our recent open evening.
'How patients in Harleston have benefitted from the training
Like many GP Practices, Harleston Medical Practice works closely with local care homes and always looks for new ways to improve patient care. So when they heard about Kate and Irene’s training they invited them to join one of their regular patient-focused open evenings.
Known carers were contacted by the practice and welcomed along to the training, which focused on avoiding falls and pressure ulcers, the importance of proper hydration and good communication with the health service in an emergency.
15 carers, plus members of the Patient Participation Group attended and, says the practice, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive – carers really appreciated the top tips to help keep their loved ones safe and well.'
