A carer is someone who gives regular care and support to someone else and isn't paid for it. If you're an unpaid carer you can have a carer's assessment which looks to support your needs to look after someone else.
You can have a carer's assessment even if the person you look after doesn't want to have their own needs assessment or isn't eligible for help.

Priority Treatment for Veterans
A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day. There are around 2.6 million veterans in the UK. When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS. It is highly important for continuing healthcare that you register with an NHS GP and remember to tell them you've served. Telling the GP practice about your veteran status will trigger the transfer of your full medical documentation from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to your GP and enable you to benefit from veteran-specific services, like prosthetics and mental health.
