Have your say

CARERS of people with mental or physical health problems are being invited to a free coffee morning.

People will be given the chance to get more information on caring for loved ones over a cup of coffee tomorrow.

Judy Hillier, director of nursing and quality at Solent NHS Trust – which is hosting the event – said: ‘Caring for someone can be a rewarding experience, but it can also be very challenging.

‘Caring has an impact upon family life, friendships, health and wellbeing, finances, and the ability to work or pursue education or leisure activities.

The event takes place at St Mary’s Community Health Campus, Milton Road, Portsmouth, from 10am to 2pm.
