In January 2024, Carers Champions and Health Coaches from GP Practices across Somerset came together with a host of insightful speakers and organisations from both the voluntary and public sectors, for our very first Carers Champion and Health Coach Conference.
It was an excellent opportunity to network, gather and share knowledge, hear what challenges frontline staff face and gain valuable insight that could help shape GP Practice services for Carers. A truly collaborative approach to supporting Carers county-wide.
Thanks to all who attended and contributed.
