Are You A Carer?

 

If you are  please let us know - we may be able to help you.

If you care for or help someone with an illness, physical disability or mental health difficulty (whether this is a partner, friend, relative or neighbour) then you are a carer. The surgery holds a register of all our patients who are caring for others. The register will help us to acknowledge your needs as a carer and provide you with further information where appropriate.

If you would like us to know that:

  • you are caring for someone, or
  • you would like the Carers Support Service (below) to contact you, or
  • you would like a Carers Assessment

Please either complete the online contact form or ask for a Carers Registration Form at the main reception desk. Carers Information Packs are also available to you free of charge. We also have information folders for young carers (up to age 19) and their parents. The Carers Support Service is a confidential information and support service for carers. You can contact them on 0300 028 8888 or via their website www.carerssupport.org.uk

There is a wealth of information on the  NHS website  about carers and caring.
