28 April 2021 19:05
@WeNurses Important to remember that staff can be carer too and often feel conflicted when they are in that versus their professional role #ExpOfCare #NHSThinkCarer
@JenKenward
28 April 2021 19:06
@WeAHPs A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid #ExpOfCare
@WeNurses
28 April 2021 19:07

@NRCUK
28 April 2021 19:08
some of them are now paid, which is an amazing thing, but many I don't think are as the role is often not even recognised by themselves, let alone anyone "formal" #ExpOfCare https://twitter.com/helenlee321_lee/status/1387468548369534981

@WeNurses Prior to the pandemic @CarersUK estimated that the economic value of carers to the health and care system was £132bn per year (roughly the annual NHS budget). Carers are vital to sustaining the NHS and wider care systems! #ExpOfCare #NHSThinkCarer
@JenKenward
28 April 2021 19:23
@WeNurses So much of what we do is about trust and respect, if we demonstrate value in the people who know most about the person we are caring for, include them and treat them as partners, we gain so much #ExpOfCare #NHSThinkCarer
