The NHS England and NHS Improvement Learning Disability and Autism Programme is inviting family carers to take part in a workshop. Attending a workshop will help you to be able to identify when the person you care for is becoming more unwell (deteriorating health) and how to tell a health professional about it. The workshop is free and only for parents with children over the age of 16.
