Celebrate carers all year round

As I sit here in the garden, enjoying the cool evening breeze after a hard day decorating the bedroom, I flick through a list of national and world days that have landed in my email in tray. Yes, I know that this is sad. However, a number of interesting—if not rather bizarre-days and weeks swim into view, including National Noodle Day (5 March) and Be Nice to Nettles Day (19 May). I kid you not. However, while having a laugh at some of the more bizarre national days and weeks, I did notice one rather important omission: National Carers' Week, which began on 14th June and seemed to pass by almost unnoticed. Why such little attention?

The importance of the role played by informal carers and their need for support from health professionals.
