Who are the Carers?

Do you care for someone?

Carers look after family, partners or friends in need of help because they are ill, frail, or have a disability. The care they provide is unpaid. To be classed as a carer the person does not have to live in the same household as the person they provide support for.

  • Frail elderly parent – carer may be daughter, son or partner.
  • Person living with a learning disability – carer may be parent or sibling.
  • Person with mental health problems – carer may be partner, friend, parent or sibling.
  • Person with a physical disability – carer may be partner, friend, parent or sibling.

In the definition the carer referred to is the person or persons who provide a significant degree of support without which the person they support would experience difficulty with life.

This practice would like to have information on any Carers we have registered, in order that we may support the Carer with their own health and social needs.

If you are a Carer, and would like to be added to our Computer information as such please let our Reception Team know.

Do you feel isolated or find it hard to get out?

If so, there is a friendly and welcoming online community waiting for you. Carers Space offers a chatroom where you can talk through the daily realities of being a carer, or just have a break and some light-hearted fun. For more information, click on the link below.

Government have announced we are moving into the delay phase of #COVID19. This means, if you have a new cough OR a high temperature (37.8 degrees or higher), but generally feel well, you do not need to contact anybody. You do need to self isolate for 7 days.

We expect the NHS to be exceptionally busy in the coming days and weeks. If you have serious symptoms that you cannot manage at home or persist longer than 7 days, please go to NHS 111 online, or call 111 if you cannot go online.
