Are you a carer?
If you are providing help or support to a friend, neighbour, relative or partner who could not stay at home due to their sickness, age or disability, then you are a carer. Please ask a receptionist to becoming a registered Carer at the surgery. Once you are registered as a Carer you are entitled to a free yearly flu vaccination and the practice offers advice and support to Carers.
What about if I am a Young Carer?
A Young Carer is someone who is aged 18 or under who has to look after a family member due to a condition, such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem.
You are also entitled to help. Ask at reception for more information
