Carers Trust hosted the Supporting Carers in Primary Care Learning Event in November 2014. This annual event was funded by the Department of Health as part of the wider Supporting Carers in Primary Care programme.
The large scale event brought together over 100 professionals from across the sector who work to identify and support carers across primary care.
The day provided an excellent opportunity for sharing information and good practice and the additional networking hour at the end of the day provided the ideal opportunity for delegates to reflect on what they had learnt together. The evaluation feedback demonstrates that delegates found the day both informative and useful.
Rick Bolton, who cares for his four-year-old son led the day, sharing his account of what being a carer means to him. Delegates heard from a variety of expert speakers including Wendy Nicholson, Professional Office for School and Community Nursing at the Department of Health, Jen Kenwood, Head of Patient Experience – Community, Primary and Integrated Care at NHS England and Moira Fraser, former Interim CEO and Director of Policy at Carers Trust, as well as taking part in a selection of workshops.
