Bev Herron is our Carers’ Hospital Liaison Officer, and is based at Scunthorpe General Hospital, and also covers Great Oaks.

She provides information, advice, practical and emotional support to Carers within the hospital setting. She can meet with Carers on the wards, in family rooms or in her office (D Floor opposite Ward 9).

On Tuesdays Bev holds Carers’ Clinics in her office at the hospital from 10am to 12pm, and from 1pm to 3pm. Appointments can be made at other times as required. She also has a Carers’ Clinic at Great Oaks every second Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm.

Bev will also attend multi-disciplinary team meetings to support Carers when needed. She ensures health professionals at the hospital, ward staff (including paediatrics), therapy teams and the hospital social work team are aware of the support she can offer, as well as the Carers’ Support Centre.

We can also advise if the person you care for is in a hospital outside North Lincolnshire.
