Carer support

We offer free support for carers and family members of all ages through our support groups and therapy sessions.

Carers’ café

On the first Wednesday of every month, 10am to 11.30am, our drop in café offers carers time to talk, time to be themselves and time to share. For further information please contact Ruby Thorpe, Angela Mizen or Cathy Wood in the Patient & Family Support team on 01372 461805

Complementary therapies

We understand that it can be difficult as a carer and so we offer a limited number of complementary therapy sessions to give carers a chance to relax, de-stress and have some time out.


Carers who meet the criteria are referred via their Princess Alice Nurse for up to four sessions, which can include aromatherapy, reflexology and massage.


This service is very busy and appointments can take two-three months.
