Are you a Carer?

Content Supplied by NHS Choices A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

We understand that as a carer you will face particular challenges and want to offer you support. Please make sure you register as a carer, at reception.

Some of the services that we currently offer are:

  • Annual health check
  • Flu vaccination each autumn
  • A dedicated carers noticeboard in the waiting room where you can find newletters and leaflets
  • A carer champion who is your practice contact and available if you need help or advice

 The Carers Champion's is Eileen Singleton and she can be contacted in a number of ways:

By calling 01923 226 011.

By email  cassiodocs@nhs.net

Or you can come into the surgery

If you have any suggestions on further services that you would like us to offer please let us know.


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?
