Carers

+ Useful Leaflets & Information

It is important that we are able to record if you are a carer, but of course this is something you do not have to do. If you decide not be noted as a carer you can still access this Carers webpage to keep up to date. Any member of our team may be involved in identifying carers through one or more of the following methods.

  • As part of our new patient registration process (registration forms available below)
  • During consultations with clinicians, both in surgery and at home visits
  • Health Visitor / District Nurse patient contact
  • Opportunistically through the Carers Leaflet provided in reception
  • Informed by a caree (this would only be recorded with your consent)

You can of course let us know yourself by filling out the form contained within the Practice Carers Leaflet.

What is a carer?

A carer is someone who looks after a relative, child or friend who needs support because of age, physical or learning disability or illness, including mental illness. It is important to realise that carers can be young people as well as older people.

Are you a carer? (registered patient or not a registered patient)

At some point in their life, many people will find that they are looking after a family member, partner or friend. Each day 6,000 people take on new caring responsibilities and, at any one time, one-in-ten people in the UK are a Carer. By registering as a Carer with the Practice or identifying that you have a Carer – we can take this information into account if you become ill or if the person you care for becomes ill. This can be important in an emergency or if one of you needs to be admitted to hospital.
