This chapter focuses on the legal treatment of carers. It develops the claim that an individualized approach to caring relationships is inappropriate. It then considers in more detail two specific issues which demonstrate this issue. The first is the relevance of carers when issues of rationing health care resources. The second is the relevance of the interests of carers when decisions are made concerning people who lack capacity.
