Carers Issues & Actions Forums

BSL RETINA Support

Are you an unpaid carer in Newham with an on-going issue that needs to be resolved? Would you like the opportunity to raise your question, or discuss a recent experience that you have had with a senior member of Council or Health Staff?

If so, please come along to one of our new Carers Issues & Actions Forums. Meetings will take place every quarter over the next 12 months, and the purpose of the forum will be to:

  • provide a single, coordinated and respectful space for carers to bring their on-going issues and service improvement suggestions
  • ensure that carers concerns are heard and addressed by senior members of staff across Adult Social Care and Health & Children’s Services
  • ensure that carers are provided with clear, consistent and accurate information and that there is a clear record of advice provided
  • work in partnership to collaboratively drive service improvement.

Submitting your questions

Email your questions to [email protected] at least 3 weeks before the forum meeting.

Wherever possible, frame your question in a way that will benefit as many people as possible. For example, stick to the main points and avoid sharing a lot of personal details.

If you need support to submit your questions, get in touch using the email address above or call Nicky Hyde on 020 3373 1457.
