Carers play a vital role in supporting family and friends with health conditions, particularly long-term health conditions. This impacts on their own health and well-being. The NHS is committed to supporting carers, and community nurses are well-placed to identify and support them, but changes in the workforce and the patient population mean that nurses’ time is limited: their focus is on meeting patients’ needs. We propose a solution: a Carer Support Nurse role, dedicated to the needs of carers. We would welcome your views on this proposal.
