Both sites include all the key topics and articles about caring, which in turn signpost you to the best information available on the internet. 

The draft NHS Constitution was published at the beginning of July 2008 for consultation alongside a 10 year plan for the NHS.

For the first time in a key NHS document, the Constitution gives carers prominence as partners in care.  The Princess Royal Trust for Carers "Welcome this as the beginning of a culture change in the NHS towards valuing the extraordinary caring contribution of ordinary people.  It builds on the NHS commitments to carers, including £150m new money for health trusts, set out in the new ten year National Carers Strategy".
