[05 OCT 98] COVENTRY CARERS CENTRE PRESS RELEASE
National Carers Day

Mary McNaney and Jennie Annett from the Coventry Carers Centre will attend The Princess Royal Trust for Carers (PRTC) second National Carers Day at the Butchers Hall in London on 8 October. They will take part in a day of consultation with HRH Princess Royal, Health Minister, Paul Boateng and the charity’s chairman, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild.

"The aim of the day is to give carers a chance to air their views on how they want the PRTC to develop services. It will also provide an opportunity for carers to express their opinions to the Government on what they want from the national strategy for carers," says Rob Pickering Carers Centre Co-ordinator.

On the agenda for discussion groups will be: primary healthcare and hospital discharge, money and caring costs, carers and employment, government departments and carers, and information and support services.

The day also gives carers from all over the UK a well-deserved break and the opportunity to meet others in similar situations.

"This is my chance to have a say about services that provide vital support to carers," said Jennie Annett from Coventry Carers Centre.

NOTES:

A Government-wide review of measures to help carers is being led by Health Minister, Paul Boateng as part of a national strategy for carers. The PRTC is among the charities being consulted by Ministers and policy-makers on the new strategy. The findings should be published in early 1999.

There are nearly 70 Princess Royal Trust Carers Centres across the UK. Each centre provides information, support and practical help to those caring for relatives, friends or neighbours who otherwise may be unable to manage at home without help.

The Princess Royal Trust for Carers was established in October 1991.
