This three-part webinar series will discuss carer-friendly practice in different clinical settings.

The NHS relies on unpaid carers, both in supporting patients and in our own workforce. Yet the needs of unpaid carers can be overlooked or taken for granted. This short webinar series will identify the markers of carer-friendly practice in both the hospital and general practice settings and set out how the NHS needs to recognise and support carers in its own ranks.

This first episode will focus on carer-friendly hospitals

Other episodes in the series:

Carer-friendly general practice Wednesday 7 July 2021, 2:00pm - 3:30pm BST

A carer-friendly workforce Wednesday 14 July 2021, 2:00pm - 3:30pm BST
