Car­ers un­veil key con­tacts

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

A NEW direc­tory full of the ser­vices and sup­port avail­able to car­ers in Peter­bor­ough has been launched.

Fol­low­ing a con­sul­ta­tion with Peter­bor­ough car­ers, NHS Peter­bor­ough’s car­ers team found there was a need for a direc­tory of the ser­vices avail­able in the city.

The direc­tory is specif­i­cally cre­ated for car­ers when the per­son be­ing cared for is leav­ing hos­pi­tal.

Ser­vices in the direc­tory in­clude NHS fa­cil­i­ties and char­i­ties and sup­port groups for dif­fer­ent ill­nesses and dis­eases.

Over the com­ing weeks the direc­tory will be dis­trib­uted to the hos­pi­tal and other key health fa­cil­i­ties across the city.

In Peter­bor­ough there are more than 2,000 reg­is­tered car­ers who ac­cess the sup­port ser­vices.
