Introduction of NHS Carer Information Strategies
The Executive is putting into effect Section 12 of the Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002 which enables Scottish Ministers to require that all NHS Boards prepare and submit to them for their approval a "Carer Information Strategy" and to prescribe the format and content of such Strategies. Draft Guidance was drawn up (hyperlink) and issued for consultation on 9 August 2004. The closing date for receiving responses was 29 October 2004.
The responses from individuals and organisations giving permission for their comments to be made public can be viewed by going to consultations. (hyperlink)
