Soap star Claire King faces a future in need of a carer

People caring for elderly, disabled or seriously ill loved ones in the capital are being urged to take advantage of the free flu jab. Research suggests less than half of the estimated 6.5 million carers across the country received the vaccine last year. Actor Claire King is hoping her personal experience as a care-giver will encourage others to take action. The soap star also revealed she is facing a future in need of a carer herself after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
