Caring for Someone

Caring for someone who couldn't manage without you?

Are you looking after someone, unpaid, who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems?

Is this person your partner, family member, child, friend or neighbour?  If yes, you are an unpaid carer and we at the Practice want to help you.

Once we are aware of your caring role and responsibilities, our dedicated Carer Lead is here to help and will let you know about the support that is available from the Practice. For example, if we know that you are caring for someone then we can:

  • Arrange flexible appointment times where possible
  • Offer you a free annual flu vaccination and health check
  • Offer you a referral to your local Carers Support Service, which provides free information, support and advice

Register with us today by completing our Carer Identification Form. You can return your completed form to Reception or email it to CLCCG.PPG@nhs.net

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
