We have a carers champion – Linda Moore who patients can contact
Please phone the surgery to book your carers health check.
If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own, we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.
We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can.
Particularly those people who may be looking after a member of their family or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, don’t really regard themselves as a Carer and are undertaking this vital activity without help or support.
If you are caring for someone, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure to help you receive all the support and information you need, or maybe simply being there to provide a kindly ear when things get too much.
If you are a Carer, please click on the link below for our Carer's Identification form or speak with our Carers Champion Linda Moore who would be happy to help.
Carers Identification Form
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.
Being a carer you are eligible for a carers health check, just contact the surgery to make an appointment with our Health Care Assistants.
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.
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.
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?
