Positives from the Carers’ Perspective

John Gurney

September 2011


Positives from the carers perspective

  • Focus on the impact of the LDPB work on carers over the last 12 months.

  • Consider some of the issues around building carers’ confidence in the LDPB

What I want to do today:


Positives from the carers perspective

The last 12 months.

I have looked carefully at minutes and reports over the last 12 months and carefully considered feedback from carers.


Positives from the carers perspective

Do family carers have confidence in the LDPB?

  • Carers understand the issues around the current economic climate but what has the Board done to reassure carers?

  • Is the glass of confidence ½ full or ½ empty?


Positives from the carers perspective

  • Is the glass of confidence

  • ½ full or ½ empty?

What the Board has done to build carers’ confidence.

  • Discussed a range of important issues.

  • Consulted, providing updates and information.


Positives from the carers perspective

  • Is the glass of confidence

  • ½ full or ½ empty?

  • Make a positive difference.

  • Address issues rather than discuss.

  • Develop and use its teeth to address the right issues.

What the Board is failing to do to build confidence:

  • Scrutinise the underlying problems. e.g.


Positives from the carers perspective

  • Is the LDPB broken?

  • Is confidence broken?

  • Only 4 meeting of the Exec. (at least 6)

  • Only 3 meetings of the Assembly. (quarterly)

  • Very poor attendance of the designated Senior Manager reps from Adult Social Services. (25%)

  • Nothing ever voted on.
