BARNSLEY Hospital bosses are encouraging carers to come together for a virtual ‘coffee and chat’.

On April 23, carers are invited to meet over Zoom through a phone or computer in a bid to stay connected whilst at home.

This is aimed at those who are the main carer of a vulnerable person who wishes to talk to those in a similar situation.

A spokesperson for the hospital said: “Share your thoughts. We are listening.

“The group session will be held on April 23 at 10am.”
