Pilot : Supporting Online Carer Self-Assessment
Lewisham Council and NHS Lewisham are working together with Carers Lewisham to develop a greater understanding of how carers fill in Carer assessments in Lewisham. As a pilot, Carers Lewisham will support carers to complete the online carers self-assessment tool, especially in circumstances where carers wish a form completed in their own right, rather than a joint assessment.
The pilot will run from early October 2017 to the end of January 2018. Once the form has been completed, it will be submitted to Adult Social Care online and our usual processes will continue. Please note the distinction between (step.1.) completing the form (which Carers Lewisham may help with) and (step .2.)assessing information & determining the actions that need to come from it.
Step.2. remains with Adult Social Care.
This pilot will be used to assist with the development of good practice and a formal protocol around the assessment and support of carers.
The carer’s assessment can be found at:-
Or, go to www.lewisham.gov.uk; type carers assessment into the search box; and use the first link that comes up.
