Refreshing the Carers Strategy

The Government is refreshing the Carers Strategy with a view to producing, before the end of the year, a plan for 2011 to 2015. This will set out the key activities upon which the Government - working in partnership with Local Authorities, the NHS, the voluntary sector, local communities and carers - can focus from April 2011 onwards.

The link below contains a letter to medical professionals from MS(CS) seeking views by 20 September 2010, on the key priorities, supported by evidence of good practice, on what will have the greatest impact on improving carers' lives in the next four years. It also contains a template for stakeholders to complete when sending their responses.
