Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Carers Forum

The Sutton Carers Forum was set up to give carers the opportunity to make their voices heard. It is jointly supported by the Council’s Carers Development Unit and the Sutton Carers Centre. It is usually well attended and has managed to attract a good range of speakers & opportunities for discussion. Today we had the Mayor in attendance once again, speaking specifically on the guidance given to GPs about supporting carers.

 

We were also very lucky to have Dr Healther Lings, Senior Partner at the Shotfield Health Centre. Carers have spoken very highly of the service provided to carers at this practice so Dr Lings had been invited to talk about what the practice did to support carers, as an example of best practice.

 

Also speaking was Frances Newell Head of Commissioning – Equalities and Patient/Public Involvement from the Sutton & Merton NHS Primary Care Trust. Frances described ways in which the trust tried to engage carers in consultations and feedback on primary care provision.
