Who Cares?

Who Cares

Well, thousands of people up and down the Fylde coast do, professionally or by looking after a loved one or friend. From 9 hours old to 90 years old most of us at some time will need care.

If you are caring or being cared for we hope you'll find this blog talks about things that are important to you. We'll share news from the world of health and social care – including the stuff you won't hear about until you're on the receiving end. If you want to get something off your chest, drop us a line and we'll share your experience. You can talk to us in confidence – we can share your story without telling the world who you are.

We want to focus on the good aspects of care as well as the not so good, with the ambition of driving up standards and achieving high standards of care for everyone.
