At NHS Improving Quality, we are working with NHS England to try and improve the support that carers receive. Last year, we carried out a listening exercise, to find out what carers need and want from the NHS and gather examples of how the NHS has helped carers. The overwhelming response was that it doesn't, and carers are often left to cope by themselves with the only support and advice they get coming largely from charities.

We are keen to hear examples of good practice around the support of carers from across the health and care system, so we can share and spread what works.

Commitment for carers flyer

  1. 1. At NHS Improving Quality, our Experience of Care team is working with NHS England to help implement its ‘Commitment to Carers’ publication. We helped to develop the commitments, which were agreed at a workshop in December last year, bringing together an invited group of carers and care representatives, healthcare professionals, commissioners, senior clinical managers, and allied health professionals. This was the first time a national event specifically for carers had been held by the NHS. We are now helping NHS England fulfil its commitment to provide better commissioning support, so the needs and wants of carers are built into We are planning four regional Evidence Summits around the country in early July, in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners and NHS England and in collaboration with Carers UK and the Carers Trust, to identify and share local examples of what is working well. Case studies will be used to create principles of good practice for the commissioning of services, which will be published in the autumn.

However, too often carers do not receive the recognition and support that they need and deserve from the NHS. We need to do more to help identify, support and recognise their vital roles. Helping carers to provide better care and to stay well themselves will contribute to better lives for those needing care and more effective use of NHS resources.
