Hospital Appointments – In January this year we had Rossanna Burnley from Halton Carers Centre come to give us a talk on her new role as hospital link worker for carers. HALDS members talked about the problems they have when taking their cared for for hospital appointments and the stress this can cause if appointments run late. Rossanna has advised that she has spoken to PALS and if have an appointment with your cared for, for any of the local hospitals i.e. Halton, Warrrington, Whiston or St Helens if you telephone the PALS department they will help to ensure your appointment runs smoothly.
