Pressure Points: carers and the NHS

30 September 2016

This report examines the role of carers in reducing emergency admissions and delayed transfers of care from hospital.

We asked carers who had used 999 or Accident & Emergency services over the previous year why they turned to emergency care. Those caring for someone admitted to hospital in the previous year were asked about whether they thought the admission to hospital could have been prevented and how well they felt supported by the discharge process and the services put in place to support them at home.
