AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP:
• Understand gaps in guidance and accessibility for carers of adults
• Understand what carers of adults know and need
• Share good practice and future intentions

According to NHS England, the out-of-hours period is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, all day at weekends and on bank holidays. Different areas have slightly different services available out of hours.

NHS out of hours care includes: 111; local pharmacies; GPs in A&E departments and urgent care centres or walk-in centres; home visits by a health and care professional; and mental health crisis teams.

As a Carer of a person 18years and over:
• WHAT DOES ‘Out of Hours’ SUPPORT MEAN TO YOU?
• DO YOU KNOW WHO TO CONTACT OUT OF HOURS IF YOU NEED
SUPPORT https://bea-skincare.com/wp/buy-accutane-online/ CARING?
• WHO WOULD YOU CONTACT?
• DO YOU HAVE THIS INFORMATION EASILY ACCESSIBLE?

Carer contingency planning can be defined as:

Having a plan in place for an unforeseen or unplanned event when a carer, who someone relies upon, is not able to continue caring, so that replacement help, and support can be quickly put in place. An emergency can be as simple as being stuck in traffic with no phone signal and carer being unable to pick the person they care for up from an appointment.

We would like to know:
• DO YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR A SITUATION IN WHICH YOU CAN’T
PROVIDE CARE, EITHER FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, OR A LONGER
PERIOD OF TIME?
• WHERE IS THE PLAN IF YES? WERE YOU SUPPORTED TO MAKE THE
PLAN?
• WHY NOT IF NO PLAN, WHAT ARE THE BARRIERS?

IF YOU COULD START FROM SCRATCH, WHAT WOULD THIS LOOK LIKE?

Please join us at the workshop.
