Are You a Carer?

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

We have a carers event at the surgery on Monday 22nd February between  9am - 1pm and also on Thursday 25th February between 9am - 1pm. The carers team are offering support and advice and will have a stand in reception area with lots of information to offer.

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?
