REF:            2016-195

Subject:        John’s Campaign

    

 

Request:

‘’Please can you inform me of the number and names of all NHS Providers within your CCG area [so this includes us here at Bolton] who have signed up to recommendations of John’s Campaign.

(Our campaign has been included in the 2016/2017 CQUIN list and this information will help us establish the baseline – and perhaps ensure that there is awareness. At the moment over 250 hospitals and wards have agreed to welcome carers, many others are planning to do so or doing so informally but others may not yet have considered it).’’

As a trust we are not currently signed up to John’s Campaign, however we have adopted an open visiting system for Carers of People with Dementia as well as other conditions which necessitate a reasonable adjustment being made as is our legal obligation.  Currently this takes the form of an open visiting pass which is given out by each ward on an individual basis.
