- Part of CPFTs 3-3-3 pathway primary nursing model person-centred approach. The ward-based programme of activities is led by a therapy team and a multi-disciplinary team of staff work with service users, carers and families to help them regain control of their lives and make positive changes to improve quality of life.

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 an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
At Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, we value the often life-long support carers provide and recognise them as equal care partners. We want to offer as much guidance and reassurance as possible, to help you in your caring role.
