This strategy identifies the actions that the Government will take between 2011-15 to support its priorities to ensure the best possible outcomes for carers and those they support.
Four areas have been prioritised, the first three of which GP practices can clearly influence:
- Supporting early self-identification and involvement in local care planning and individual care planning
- Personalised support for carers and those receiving care
- Supporting carers to remain healthy, and
- Enabling carers to fulfil their educational and employment potential.
