Are you a Carer? 

Please get in touch with us to let us know.  We can help by:

  • ensuring that appointments are accessible to carers who would otherwise struggle to attend due to their caring role.
  • where appropriate, support the sharing of medical information of a cared for persons’ condition to allow the carer to effectively manage their health and social care needs at home.
  • providing effective information about and signposting to carers support services
    raise awareness with GP and practice staff that someone is a carer for consideration during consultations.
  • ensuring that outpatient appointments and admission letters give information that the patient is a carer.
