Access to health care for carers: barriers and interventions: report for the National Co-ordinating Centre for NHS Service Delivery and Organisation R & D (NCCSDO)

Background The General Household Survey 2000 shows that approximately 6.8 million adults in Britain provide care to sick or disabled relatives or friends, or the elderly.
