Caring Together in Eastern Cheshire
The aim of Caring Together is to deliver a new system of health and social care across Eastern Cheshire that joins-up local care for all our wellbeing. It’s about the providers of care working with the people who receive care, their support networks, family, friends and carers.
This is your Caring Together Engagement HQ - a place where you can find information, view our latest updates, share your experiences, tell us your views and get involved.
For more information on how to join the conversation, and why, read the campaign leaflet: http://caringtogether.info/document/show/114
