Carers unveil key contacts
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.
