Telling who is a carer

We need to be able to tell who is a carer so they can get a carer's assessment (Carer's Support Plan) and support.

This is not always easy. Some people don't think they are carers or don't want to be called carers.

Doctors (GPs) are usually the first people to find out if a person is a carer. Doctors keep a list of carers and they use this to refer carers for support. We don't think doctors should keep a list of carers. We think Health Boards should share ideas on how to raise awareness about carers in doctor's surgeries.
