Caring about Carers

What is a Carer?

A Carer is someone who, without payment, regularly helps a disabled, ill or frail relative, friend or neighbour.

If you are a Carer, we would like to know so, as a Practice, we can offer you help and support.  Tina Tubbs from the Patient Services Team is our Carer's Lead and is available for support and advice via Reception.

Register as a Carer on or via 0800 368 8349 for further support and information.

There is also an organisation called Help and Care - tel no: 01202 434455 - who have free factsheets on more than 20 topics relevant to Carers and will visit you or can offer support if you contact them.
