Are You a Carer?

If you are a carer please come to the surgery and inform us. You will be provided with a questionnaire and this information will be recorded on your records. You will be entitled to yearly health checks, flu vaccinations as well as support from outside agencies if you consent for us to pass your details on.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.
  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
