Hospital adopts discount scheme for carers

Carers across Dorset can now benefit from a new discount on food and drink at Poole Hospital.

The hospital has signed up to the Dorset Carers Card Scheme, an initiative that recognises the valuable work that carers undertake all across the county.

Now, any carer who displays their carers card at the till at the hospital’s Dolphin Restaurant will receive the staff discounted rate for food and drink.

The card was introduced in June 2016 and provides a saving at many regional and national businesses across Dorset.

Poole Hospital’s carers support lead Lizzie Adams said: “The discount is just one way of showing just how much we appreciate the incredible support carers offer.

“Many carers visit the hospital on a regular basis so it made perfect sense to offer them a discount at our restaurant.

“We are proud to be part of this important county-wide initiative and the response from our carers has been fantastic.”

Kevin Bailey, catering services manager, added: “We value the role that our carers undertake in supporting our patients and staff, it’s fantastic that we are able to offer this service to carers.”

Carers make a huge contribution to Poole Hospital, providing invaluable personal information to staff about a loved one and proficient care that can reduce how long the patient needs to stay in the hospital.Dorset carer's card
