Jenny and I have been working with the National Care Forum and other organisations to raise awareness of the importance of the Essential Care Giver.
We were asked to contribute to a blog which is now on the DHSC website. Unfortunately, our comments have been edited significantly.
However Rights For Residents and the National Care Forum have used this platform as an opportunity to promote the Essential Care Giver which can only be a positive step forward. We hope it may help those who are still being denied Essential Care Giver status to use this link in correspondence with your Care Provider.
We are also meeting with Helen Whately on 20 April to discuss the care providers who continue to refuse Essential Care Giver status
