How can the NHS improve support for carers?
The Department of Health wants to learn more about the lives of those who give their time and energy to support friends or family members needing care. They want to hear from carers, those who have someone care for them, business, social workers, NHS staff and other professionals that support carers. They are developing a new strategy to set out what carers need; one which reflects their lives and the health and financial concerns they have about themselves, their families and those they care for. The Department of Health’s call for evidence closes on 30 June 2016.
