Are carers being heard by health professionals?

Today the Lights! Camera! ACTION!studio is broadcasting from Monmouthshire.

Are you a carer? Do you feel you are being heard? Janice, a carer from Monmouthshire, has spoken in the studio about the need forhealth professionals to make a point of listening to carers, saying: “Theyhaven’t really given me the time to let me find out how my husband has been andalso to let me describe how he is behaving… all of that would contribute tohim having the right treatment.” Clickhere to watch Janice’s film blog.

At the launch of Lights!Camera! ACTION! in May Nigel Griffiths, Chair of Bipolar UK’s WalesAdvisory Committee, said: “We’ve got all the words, but now we’ve got toput them into practice.” Clickhere to hear Nigel talking about his hopes for the campaign.
