Do you look after someone who cannot get by without your help?
Do you look after someone, a friend, a relative or a neighbour who, due to an illness, disability, frailty, poor mental health or substance misuse, would struggle without your support?
Information on help and support for carers can be found here
It is important you let the practice know if you look after someone. We can add you to our Carer Register for you to gain access to information and support, including our Carer Champions at the practice. Carer Champions help with the identification of carers, act as a voice for carers and are a key point of contact for carer information.
Our Carer Champions are Samantha Papworth and Diane Rowley and both are keen to provide a quality service and help carers as much as possible. If they are not available at the time of your query, please leave a message and they will contact you at the earliest possible convenience. By completing this questionnaire and returning it to the practice, you can help us to monitor and improve our service.
