Consultation Response

Carers NI response to proposed Health and Social Care Trust’s Savings Plans

06 October 2017

The Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together identified carers as “equal partners in care” and “in need of our support” yet these proposed savings cuts will undoubtedly put more pressure on carers who are looking after an ill, elderly or disabled family member or friend.

We welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation given the reliance of carers on a quality and supportive health and social care system. However, we are concerned that the timeframe to respond to this consultation was so limited and whilst we did attend several consultation events alongside carers, there was not enough time to have a full conversation with carers about the potential impact of these proposed savings plans on their daily lives.
