Carers

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. You can register as a carer with the practice by completing the online form. Once you are registered as a carer you are entitled to a free yearly flu vaccination, free health check and the practice offers advice and support to carers. If you would like further information, please ask reception.

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. Please ask reception for more information.

What other help am I entitled to?
