President chairs first conference for carers

The Isle of Man's first carers' conference is being held at the Mount Murray Hotel today.

It's been organised by Crossroads Caring for Carers, in partnership with Manx Cancer Help and Hospice, to highlight the important work done by carers in the Island.

The conference is aimed at organisations who deal with carers, health professionals and carers themselves, and it's being chaired by President of Tynwald Noel Cringle.

Speakers include psycho-oncologist Professor Robin Davidson, who is director of the Macmillan Support and Information Centre at Belfast City Hospital.
