Not everyone thinks of themselves as a carer. But recognising that you are a carer is important in getting the practical, emotional and financial support you need. Balancing work and caring can be tough. But carrying on working can also be positive. You can have a carer’s assessment to find out what kind of support you can get. You may also be entitled to financial help, such as benefits or grants.
By registering as a Carer within our surgery we may be able to assist with appointment times. It is also important to us that you take care of your own health for example - you will be entitled to a free flu vaccination. We want to ensure that you are also receiving the best healthcare.
