WINNER: Devon County Council and Devon CCG – Together for Devon Carers Hospital Service

The Together for Devon Carers Hospital Service is producing improvements in carer identification, timeliness of discharge, admission and re-admission avoidance and outcomes for carers and their families.

Partnered byNHS_logo

It brings together the NHS, voluntary sector, and local government in equal partnership with and for carers, who as users of the service, and as ambassadors for carer communities in Devon, are central to the design and development of the project.

Despite covid, the project delivers improvements in outcomes and quality of life for many carers and the people for whom they care as well as quantifiable system benefits.
