SLHD Carers' Program
Carers' Programs were started in NSW Health in 2003. The aim was to improve the response of health services to Carers and the access of Carers to services for both themselves, and the people they care for. Carers are partners in care. The job of the SLHD Carers Program is to ensure issues that are important to Carers are identified by health service staff. This will foster a Carer friendly approach and an environment where Carers' knowledge and skills are respected.
