Tell Us You Care
Do you care for a relative or friend who relies on you for help and support?
If you are a carer who is not employed by an organisation for this purpose, please let the surgery know this and the name of the person you care for so that we can mark your records and those of the person you look after accordingly.
If, for example, you need to be admitted to hospital the surgery will be in a position to ensure that something is put in place to care for the individual who relies on you.
