We are delighted to invite you to the Carer Support Nurse Pilot Webinar on Thursday 15th February 2024 1pm-2pm where we will be showcasing the findings from the pilot of this award-winning carer-dedicated nursing role. The Carer Support Nurse was co-developed with cross-sector stakeholders to support carers with complex health/wellbeing needs and promote best practice in carer support among other healthcare providers. This is an online event.

The Carer Support Nurse pilot role was funded by Norfolk & Waveney ICB, and the evaluation of the pilot funded by NHS England (formerly Health Education England-East of England) and supported by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England and UEA Health & Social Care Partners.
