Are you looking after someone, a relative, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail or disabled and is unable or has difficulties looking after him or herself? Do you give support to someone who has mental health needs or misuses alcohol or drugs?
If you are, that means you’re a carer and by registering that you are a carer with the Practice it could mean that we are able to offer you more support or link you up with organisations that could be helpful to you. Please complete this form below and hand it in to the receptionist or post it to us.

- 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?
