The county’s NHS provider of mental health, learning disabilities and autism services continues to receive recognition for how it engages and involves carers and relatives, having been reaccreditation with the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award.
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) first received the award in 2017 and the Trust continues to work to gain reaccreditation each year, recognising the commitment teams continue to make to identify and support unpaid carers.
The award programme, funded by Lincolnshire County Council, is delivered by Lincolnshire based organisation, Every-One, which works to support unpaid carers and those they care for.
The Trust’s inpatient and crisis teams are the latest to receive their reaccreditation, with the veterans’ service having received theirs at the start of the year and the community mental health teams receiving theirs at the end of last year.
Donna Bradford, LPFT’s Head of Carer and Relative Experience and Volunteers, said: “I am delighted that our staff continue to be recognised for their hard work in continuing to develop to support carers and relatives of those who use our services.
“Our teams work incredibly hard to support carers in providing the highest quality of care to all our service users, whilst continuing to do everything possible to provide the support carers need to carry on in their vital roles.”
