Do you look after someone?

Are you caring for someone who lives in their own home or is living with you?

Please tell us if you are caring for someone. We want to support you in your caring role and may be able to give you some information that will be helpful to you. We can discuss the kind of support or help that you feel you need and can put you in touch with local carer support services if that is appropriate. We want to help you to stay as fit and healthy as possible; for example, people registered as carers with the practice are invited for a flu jab each Autumn.

Please register yourself as a carer at reception or discuss it with your GP to find out what support is available to carers.

Younger carers can seek support on their own website
