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 final episode will recognise the importance of a carer-friendly workforce. We will discuss how to support members of staff working within the NHS who are also carers, and explore how carer-friendly practice can also improve staff retention and patient outcomes.

Other episodes in the series:

Carer-friendly hospitals Wednesday 30 June 2021, 2:00pm - 3:30pm BST

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