This guide has been produced by NHS England. ‘A Practical Guide to Healthy Caring’ (online pdf) aims to support the 5.4 million carers, and in particular those 1.2 million aged over 65, who make a critical and often under-appreciated contribution not only to loved ones, neighbours and friends, but to the very sustainability of the NHS itself. The Guide is an A4 magazine-style publication that members of the public, professionals and organisations such as CCGs, pharmacists, Fire and Rescue Services and GPs can order free by ringing 0300 123 1002 or through the Department of Health website
