This indicator measures health-related quality of life for people who identify themselves as helping or supporting family members, friends, neighbours or others with their long-term physical or mental illness/disability or because of problems related to old age.
This indicator seeks to capture how successfully the NHS is supporting carers to live as normal a life as possible. This indicator helps people understand whether health-related quality of life for carers is improving over time.
There are no planned future updates for this indicator. The methodology for the indicator requires review, this is not actively being progressed at this time.
