Without them Social Care and the NHS would collapse
NHS England recently published an End of Year Progress Summary reviewing progress made on 37 commitments made to carers in May 2014.  The Commitments to Carers were based on what carers said was important to them.  A good start has been made with 32 commitments completed and others continuing to be monitored.  But more work needs to be done on the Five Year Forward View commitment to finding new ways to support carers.
