Identification of carers in GP practices – a good practice document

Around one in ten patients in every GP practice will be a carer.

GPs can work with the Carers Trust network partners to make sure carers are identified and get the support they need.

A document published by the Carers Trust highlights some of the good practice of identification of carers in general practice. It aims to encourage GP practices with less developed methods to identifying carers, to develop these to allow them to identify carers, and enable carers to get the support they need.
