Do you care for someone?
You may not be aware that the Government would like to recognise all carer’s and the wonderful job they are doing for family and friends. The Surgery now have an Information package to give to carer’s with advice on how to obtain support. If you are a carer, come and have a chat with us in reception.
If you are looking after someone who couldn’t cope without your help, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give. A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. You are a Young Carer if you are under 18 in this role.
You can be added to the practice ‘carer register’ and gain access to information and support. This includes access to a named Carer Champion.
