Carers are being reminded they can access informatio­n online.

NHS 24 runs the online service Care Informatio­n Scotland which has lots of informatio­n in one place for people with caring responsibi­lities.

NHS 24’s associate medical director, Dr Paul Perry said carers play an important role so it’s vital we support them.

He said: “Looking after a loved one, a friend or neighbour can be rewarding but it can also be demanding, physically and emotionall­y.

“Carers need support too and our service, Care Informatio­n Scotland, offers a wide range of advice and informatio­n.

“Bringing all the different resources together in one place makes it easier for people to find what they need and helps us to care for our carers.”
