Derbyshire Carers Listening Events

Please note that the event previously announced to take place on 10 October has been cancelled.

Southern Derbyshire CCG has allocated some charitable funds to hold Carers Listening Events across Derbyshire. Events have been split to cover the Derby city boundary, and the Derbyshire area. The dates are listed below but if you live in Derby city, and care for someone who lives in (say) Belper, you would need to come to the event that takes place at one of the county venues listed below. Likewise, if you live in the county area, but care for someone living in the city (say Alvaston), you would need to attend one of the city venues.

This ensures that people get the right messages about the services. If you are unsure about which date/venue to choose, please email or call 01332 868756.

The dates for Derby city are:

• Tuesday 31 October 10am to 2pm Hallmark Hotel, Midland Road

• Wednesday 8 November 10am to 2pm Derby Conference Centre, London Rd

The dates for Derbyshire County are:

• Wednesday 29 November 10am to 2pm Makeney Hall, Belper

• Tuesday 17 January 10am to 2pm Peak Edge Hotel, Chesterfield

The events are designed for you to give your views on a number of issues including:

• Emergency Planning

• Discharge Planning (this may change depending on availability)

• Carers Pathway

• Assistive Technologies

• Joined Up Care Derbyshire (Sustainability and Transformation Plan)

To thank you for all the work you do a thank you lunch will also be available.

Travel expenses are available at 45p per mile if you are driving and bus/train fares as required. In exceptional circumstancestaxis will be refunded up to a maximum of £10 each way but this must be agreed in advance.

Numbers will be limited to 40 per event so please attend only one event to ensure that there is space for everyone to have their input.
