Are you an unpaid carer? The HSCB seeks your views on respite support


The Health and Social Care Board is keen to hear from carers who care for a family member, neighbour or friend who needs care and support to help them remain at home.

The Health and Social Care Board, as the regional commissioner of services, is currently undertaking a review of short break/respite services in your own home or that of person you care for, which are provided by Health and Social Care Trusts across Northern Ireland. The Board is keen to hear from you about your experiences to help us improve parts of the short break/respite service that your local Trust provides.

You can help us by completing a short survey on our website at www.surveymonkey.com/r/8Z639XR. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and the feedback from this survey will help us to ensure that the short break/respite service works as well as it can for you.

Alternatively, you can opt to complete this questionnaire by emailing Trudy.Harkness@hscni.net or ringing her at (028) 9536 2846 and complete the survey over the phone. The Board will try to accommodate as many as possible who wish to do this.

The closing date for all completed surveys is Friday 19 June 2015.
