If you would like any support or discuss any concerns you have in your role as a carer, please contact reception for more information.

Do you look after someone who could not cope without you?

If you are a Carer then please inform your Health Centre. We are here to help.

When you are a carer it is often difficult to have a real break or time off for yourself. You can get tired and run down, and your own health may suffer. Tell your GP that you are a Carer and ask to be put on the carers register.

In most cases the surgery can then:

  • Let you know about other organisations that can help;
  • Offer you a health check;
  • Give you a free flu vaccination;
  • Share information with you about the person you care for to help you in your caring role (when consent form is completed).
