Do you look after someone who could not manage without you?

If so, you may be a carer.

Carers provide help and support to a partner, relative, child, friend or neighbour who could not manage without your help due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty, life-limiting illness or addiction.

Carers can be any age and background. 

Get the help you deserve.

Your GP is there to help you. Speak to the reception staff and identify yourself as a Carer or discuss it with your doctor or nurse.

Once practice staff know you are a Carer they may be able to offer you further assistance, such as free flu vaccinations, a general health check and information on events and additional support.
