Salford Carers' Strategy Consultation
Salford City Council and NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group are working with carers to develop a new Salford carers’ strategy. The strategy will provide guidance to all agencies in Salford on how to ensure carers' health and wellbeing is improved in the City.
This strategy will build on the last Salford carers’ strategy which was developed in 2013 and will involve adult service users and carers in planning their own care, as well as the design, delivery and evaluation of health and social care services.
In order to help the Council and CCG develop this strategy they would appreciate if you could spend a few minutes to give them your views on what it is like to be a carer of a person over 18 in Salford and what you feel is important to you as a carer.
You can take the survey by clicking on the following link......
Deadline for responses is February 17th 2017
What / who is a carer?
Carers are people who care for a family member, a friend or another person in need of assistance or support with daily living. They include those caring for frail, older people; those living with long-term medical conditions; people with a mental illness; people with a disability and those receiving palliative care.
Some carers do not call themselves carers but see themselves as wife or husband, mother or father, partner, grandparent, child, friend or neighbour. At times, because of the nature of the illness, a carer may not be recognised as a carer by the person he or she is providing care to.
