Caring for our Carers: Rethinking the NHS workforce in Cheshire & Merseyside

  • The Foundry 65 Lugsdale Road Widnes, England, WA8 6DA United Kingdom (map)

There are 280,000 informal carers in Cheshire in Merseyside including an estimated 6,000 formal NHS staff. This represents almost one in eight of us and is likely to rise over the coming years.

Given the research commissioned by Cheshire and Merseyside’s NHS, this event will explore two key aspects:

  1. How can we best support the 280,000 informal carers that supplement our formal health and social care system?

  2. How can we best support NHS staff who are also informal carers?

This event will be of interest to:

  • HR teams, Directors / Deputy Directors of nursing, heads of social care and those with a responsibility for staff health and wellbeing and staff side colleagues,

  • Carer Support Organisations across Cheshire and Merseyside.


This event is jointly hosted by VSNW and Health & Care Partnership for Cheshire & Merseyside.
