Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), including information about the COVID-19 vaccine, go to the NHS website. You can also find guidance and support on the GOV.UK website.
This paper addresses changes to the way in which carer health and wellbeing need is identified, assessed, and supported, as a result of changes introduced by the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014.
It is, essentially, a resource to help promote working together between Adult social care services, NHS commissioners and providers, and third sector organisations that support carers, of all ages, with a specific focus on developing an integrated approach to the identification, assessment and support of carers and their families across health and social care.
To support this joint working, a template Memorandum of Understanding, to be discussed and agreed locally, is included at Appendix One.
