Event description

Description

There are 280,000 informal carers in Cheshire in Merseyside including an estimated 6,000 formal NHS staff. This represents almost one in eight of us and is likely to rise over the coming years.

Given the research commissioned by Cheshire and Merseyside’s NHS, this event will explore two key aspects:

  1. How can we best support the 280,000 informal carers that supplement our formal health and social care system?
  2. How can we best support NHS staff who are also informal carers?


This event will be of interest to:

  • HR teams, Directors / Deputy Directors of nursing, heads of social care and those with a responsibility for staff health and wellbeing and staff side colleagues,
  • Carer Support Organisations across Cheshire and Merseyside.


The current draft agenda is as follows:

10.00 am: Arrival, refreshments and registration
