Carer support: time for a rethink?

Kennedy, Catriona



In this editorial the author points out that, according to a Carers UK 2019 report, three in five people in the UK will be carers at some point in their lives. The Carers (Scotland) Act (2016) will set out in policy the requirement for adult carers to have a carer support plan, however only time will tell if this will improve carers' experiences.
