Portsmouth’s second carers strategy builds on the significant achievements of the 2011-2015 strategy.
Produced jointly by Portsmouth City Council, NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group, Solent NHS Trust and Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust it covers carers of all ages.
The strategy has been written to follow on from the previous document and in response to the publication of the National Carers Strategy Second Action Plan 2014-2016.
The strategy and its’ two year action plan sets out how we will improve carer identification and support across the health and social care system in Portsmouth.
This programme of work will meet the requirements of the National Carers Strategy, the Care Act 2014, Better Care Fund and locally identified needs and will continue to be monitored by the Carers Executive Board.
