NB: For an important new ruling on information sharing in health and social care, which may assist family carers in discussing concerns with professionals, see The Information Governance Review, March 2013, pg. 119, Principle 7: "The duty to share information can be as important as the duty to protect patient confidentiality. Health and social care professionals should have the confidence to share information in the best interests of their patients, within the framework set out by the Principles."

* The Carers' Call to Action was a time-limited campaign to raise awareness of dementia carer issues; it was wound down at the end of March 2015, but its work continues through a new organisation, Tide.
