Funded by the Department of Health East Midlands to support implementation of the national carers strategy, two projects have successfully taken place in the region to improve early access to information, advice and support for carers in primary care health settings.
Practice Based Commissioning (PBC) consortia were invited to submit innovative proposals costing up to £25,000, to improve support for carers of people with longterm conditions. This recognises the pivotal role that primary care clinicians have in identifying and supporting carers, both in terms of their own health and in helping patients to maintain their support network in the community.
