On Monday, February 11, 2019, Surrey Carers Providers Network organised an event for carers at Guildford Rugby Club, under the banner: "How Integrated Care Systems are Supporting Carers Across Surrey". You can see a short film about the event here:

Carers UK has launched a new mobile and online app designed by carers, for carers 

Jointly is designed to make caring a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised. This app is for carers who share a caring role for the same person. Carers in the circle are invited to join so they can co-ordinating tasks and information regarding the person they all care for. (Particularly useful is the ability to share medication lists for health appts)
