Carers UK: Third of unpaid carers would use a break from caring to see the doctor

Carers UK have released a report on breaks provision for unpaid carers.

Findings include:

  • Freedom of Information request reveals unpaid carers seeking replacement care for loved ones subjected to a postcode lottery;
  • Hundreds of thousands of carers going without enough sleep or seeing a doctor;
  • Give carers a break if we truly want to improve our social care system.

Unpaid carers are unable to see a doctor because they can’t get a break from caring, according to damning new figures published by national charity Carers UK.
