This measure shows the proportion of carers who report that they have been included or consulted in discussions about the person they care for, and is calculated from data collected in the Carers Survey.
The relevant question drawn from the Carers Survey is Question 15:
“In the last 12 months, do you feel you have been involved or consulted as much as you wanted to be, in discussions about the support or services provided to the person you care for?”.
Carers should be respected as equal partners in service design for those individuals for whom they care - this improves outcomes both for the cared for person and the carer, reducing the chance of breakdown in care. This measure reflects the experience of carers in how they have been consulted by both the NHS and social care.
