star this property answer text <p>Section 2.33 of NHS England’s Long Term Plan states:</p><p>“We will continue to identify and support carers, particularly those from vulnerable communities. Carers are twice as likely to suffer from poor health compared to the general population, primarily due to a lack of information and support, finance concerns, stress and social isolation. Quality marks for carer-friendly GP practices, developed with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), will help carers identify GP services that can accommodate their needs. We will encourage the national adoption of carer's passports, which identify someone as a carer and enable staff to involve them in a patient’s care, and set out guidelines for their use based on trials in Manchester and Bristol. These will be complemented by developments to electronic health records that allow people to share their caring status with healthcare professionals wherever they present.”</p><p> </p><p>There is currently no data on the number of Carer Passports nationally and the use of theses passports is variable across the country and across different health, care and community settings.</p><p> </p><p>Work commissioned by the Department and carried out by Carers UK and Carers Trust, led to the development of a carer passport resource. The Carer Passport resource is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://carerspassports.uk/" target="_blank">https://carerspassports.uk/</a></p><p>This provides information on existing passport frameworks and support for the development of carer passports across a range of settings. As part of NHS England’s commitments, we will be supporting the use of these passports and promoting this through the implementation of our Quality Markers in Primary Care (launched in June), ongoing development work with sustainability and transformation partnership and integrated care system localities and as an extension of work already in progress following the response to John’s Campaign within secondary care settings. More information about John’s Campaign is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://johnscampaign.org.uk/#/" target="_blank">https://johnscampaign.org.uk/#/</a></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Many people procure the services of self-employed carers via their social care personal budget. A personal budget is an agreed amount of money allocated by a local authority to an individual receiving care, following an assessment of their care and support need.</p><p> </p><p>Personal budgets enable individuals to purchase care services from a provider of their choice, in line with their agreed care plan. This may include employing self-employed carers such as personal assistants. Regulations do not require personal assistants to be registered with the Care Quality Commission. Local authorities are required to provide the level of support the individual wants when purchasing any care.</p><p> </p><p>There is much advice and published guidance already available to support individuals when making decisions on procuring services of self-employed carers; for example, encouraging individuals who employ self-employed carers to consider asking for Disclosure and Barring Service checks, prior to employment. We have also commissioned Skills for Care and Think Local Act Personal to produce a range of additional support materials for those requiring care.</p>

This will raise the image and profile of the sector and encourage people with the right values to apply for current vacancies. The Government also continues to work with its delivery partner Skills for Care to provide a range of resources and practical toolkits for providers to help attract, train and retain staff.</p><p> </p><p>The upcoming Adult Social Care Green Paper will set out the Department’s proposals for reform of the sector to put it on a more sustainable future footing.
