To support this ambition NHS England has published Supporting carers in general practice: a framework of quality – a series of best-practice Quality Markers for primary care that highlight existing best practice in carer identification and support for carers of all ages.
The Quality Markers have been designed so that they will also provide evidence for other organisations, including the Care Quality Commission (CQC), that are responsible for making sure general practices provide safe and high-quality care.
