The Princess Royal Trust for Carers' response to new NHS Information Centre's carers survey

Carole Cochrane, Chief Executive at The Princess Royal Trust for Carers' comment on the NHS Survey on Carers' Health:

"This survey reveals just how caring can have a detrimental impact on people's health, finances and social life. What is worrying is that over half surveyed think that their caring responsibilities will increase over the next five years, so it is vital that the government and local councils continue to fund carers' support services. If we want to build a society that cares, we must support carers."
