Carers Trust comments on Government response to Integrated Care Systems reviews

The government has published its response to the Hewitt Review and the recent Health and Social Care Select Committee Inquiry into the workings of Integrated Care Systems.

Commenting on the government response, Carers Trust’s CEO, Kirsty McHugh, said:

“We understand the drive from the government and local areas to enable Integrated Care Systems and their partners to focus on the needs of the local population. We strongly believe that national targets should include support for carers of all ages. We know that without unpaid carers the health and social care system would collapse, so it is vital that unpaid carers are seen and made a priority.

“Despite their critical importance to our health and social care system, however, we know that many unpaid carers do not get the support they need. That is why it’s vital that any newly reduced number of national targets still includes an explicit and clear expectation to support carers.”
