Report that provides evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and peer reviewed journals to show that increasing support for carers: improves health and wellbeing outcomes for patients and recipients of care; improves health and wellbeing outcomes for carers, who suffer disproportionately high levels of ill-health; reduces unwanted admissions, readmissions and delayed discharges in hospital settings; and reduces unwanted residential care admissions and length of stays.
