Carers: Recognition and Rights - Your Contribution Matters Webinar

Join NHS Education for Scotland for a webinar focusing on: Carers Recognition and Rights - Your Contribution Matters

Date & Time: Thursday 11 March 2021, 1400-1515 (GMT)

In your role, it is highly likely that you meet carers. By carers we mean people who provide unpaid care to another person – they are the family, friends, partners and neighbours of the people you provide services to.

We all have a role to play in improving the health and wellbeing of carers and supporting them to have a life alongside caring. This webinar is relevant to staff working across health and social care – in dementia, mental health, autism, pharmacy, dentistry… The list is endless because it is relevant to us all.

This webinar will enable you to:

  • Briefly describe carers rights under the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016
  • Engage carers in conversations about their own health and wellbeing
  • Signpost and support carers to access locally available services

Presenters include:

  • Claire Cairns: Network Coordinator, Coalition of Carers in Scotland
  • Shubhanna Hussain-Ahmed: Partnership Development Officer, Coalition of Carers in Scotland
  • Morag Ferguson: Senior Educator, NHS Education for Scotland
