P3 Carers resource

P3, The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, and the Scottish Government have produced a resource for GPs to help support, carers within their communities.

The Resource

Cited as an official Action Point for the Scottish Government/COSLA Carers Strategy, and striving to go beyond QOF points, this resource is designed to be held on your IT system with a printable page with essential contact information to be handed out to the carer if required.

Background documents

The Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) collaborated with a range of public bodies to develop two strategies to ensure carers are supported :

  • Caring Together The Carers Strategy for Scotland 2010-2015 
  • Getting it Right for Young Carers Strategy - The Young Carers Strategy for Scotland 2010-2015 

Carers Scotland prepared a concise summary of the headline Actions arising from the strategies.
