Carers Network's Podcast Series


Episode 2

Season 1, Ep. 2

In this second episode of Carers Network's new podcast series, Carers Network's former CEO Sally Miller talks to Roy Lilley.

Roy is a health policy analyst, writer, broadcaster and commentator on the National Health Service and social issues

Recorded before the 2nd national lockdown in England was introduced, together they reflect on the first lockdown and initial 6 months of the pandemic. They discuss the particular challenges faced by unpaid carers and the huge impact their tireless work has had on nation and NHS:

"Let's say thank you to unpaid carers. There are a million backs that need patting and we should do it now" Roy Lilley.

They also focus on how technology has been used to overcome these challenges and what organisations like Carers Network should be doing more of.

The Carers Network Podcast Series is produced thanks to the very generous support of A2 Dominion Investing in Communities’ Great Places to Live Community Emergency Fund.
