Care Bill — New Clause 19 — Promoting Health of Carers — 10 Mar 2014 at 19:00

The majority of MPs voted against requiring the NHS to give specific consideration, particularly related to health, to those who, on an unpaid basis, look after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty or disability.

MPs were considering the Care Bill[1]. The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was:

  • (1) In exercising their functions health bodies shall—
  • (a) promote and safeguard the health and well-being of carers;
  • (b) ensure that effective procedures exist to identify patients who are or are about to become carers;
  • (c) ensure that appropriate systems exist to ensure that carers receive appropriate information and advice; and
  • (d) ensure that systems are in place to ensure that the relevant general medical services are rendered to their patients who are carers.
