Are you a Carer?
Are you a Carer? Let us know
A Carer is someone who looks after a partner, relative or friend who cannot manage without help because of illness frailty or disability, you may or may not live together.
What Can We Do To Help?
The Practice holds a list of those patients who are Carers and who have agreed to be on the register. The register enables the practice to provide Carers with information on local and national support and help. We can also arrange a referral to Social Services for a Carers Needs Assessment and other voluntary service agencies if required.
How Can You Register As A Carer?
Registration forms are available in the surgery, downloadable from this page or you can speak to any staff member. Forms are also available from other voluntary organisations.
Jayne Davies is our Practice Carer’s Lead and you can ask to speak to her by telephone on 01550 720648 or come into the surgery for a chat.
What Is A Carer's Needs Assessment?
A Carer’s Needs Assessment is your opportunity to tell Social Services about the things that could make caring easier for you and it is an assessment of your needs, not those of the person you are caring for. Every Carer is entitled to an assessment and when you register with us as a Carer, the practice will offer you the chance of a referral.
