A carer is a person of any age who provides or intends to provide on-going, unpaid support to a partner, child, relative or friend.  Without this help the health and wellbeing of the cared for person could deteriorate due to frailty, disability, a serious health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse. 

Are you a carer?

If you are a carer, please let us know, you can your name and contact details plus the name of the person you care for (if you have their consent to give us their details) with one of our receptionists. Please also ask for a carer’s pack which is full of information to help support you. 

If you would like any help or information, please ask at reception to speak to the Carers Lead - Alison Cosher or telephone on 01929 462376.j

There is a carers notice board in the waiting room with useful information. We list any events near us on the notice board.
