THOSE who save the UK £119bn per year by acting as a full time carer for someone are to be recognised in county wide awards.

NHS Northants is searching for friends, relatives, partners or children deserving extra recognition for the care they provide for free.

NHS Northants development manager Sharon Benford, said the awards are part of a wider campaign to get carers to look after themselves and added: “Following the success of last year’s Jane Roebuck Carers Awards, we are holding another ceremony to recognise unpaid carers whose efforts in providing care to someone else are particularly exceptional and deserving of additional recognition.”
