Is the person you care for in hospital? HSCPs across Scotland have received a letter from the Scottish Government which reiterates very clearly that those who are providing care to a supported person should be supported to continue providing care if that person is admitted to hospital. This includes paid and unpaid carers as they are both essential to safe effective care.

If you need support with being allowed to visit the person you care for please get in touch with us.
