Carers' Resource - You care for them, we care for you

Finding the right service for your long term condition, how was it for you?

The modern health and social care system is complex and often provided by a wide range of public and voluntary sector organisations, sometimes in isolation from one another.  For Patients and Carers it can be difficult, frustrating and time consuming to find the right services. We want to understand what is needed to ensure that people can identify use the best service for them whether it’s in the NHS, local authority or voluntary and community sector.

Do you have recent experience of trying to find health or social care services? Perhaps you work for a service? We will produce a report with recommendations for NHS and local authority planners and we want to make sure that our recommendations are directly informed by the views of Patients and Carers and front line Staff. Whatever your views, we would like to hear from you.
