The Yorkshire Carers Roadshows
The Leeds Carers Roadshow is a part of a series of roadshows across Yorkshire, which focus on a ‘street to strategy’ ethos developed and inspired by Trevor Clower who is himself an unpaid full-time carer for his son. Across Yorkshire, and in equal partnership with carers, nurses’ whole communities and systems the roadshows provide an open space for carers and families to get some much-needed advice support and help across a large conurbation.
Carers Leeds features Louise Brady, Primary Care Nursing Lead at NHSE in conversation with Ruth Colbeck Lead Nurse for West Leeds Primary Care network on why this is important to them.
