Carer Information

If you are a carer please let us know and we will update your record. People who provide unpaid care often don’t realise they are a ‘carer’ and because of this go without help, support, information and advice on a range of services and opportunities which may help them in their caring role.

Remaining as a ‘hidden carer’ can cause significant stress and anxiety for individuals and can negatively affect their overall health and well being. We know that people who are experiencing stress, anxiety, exhaustion or low mood often turn to members of the Primary Health Care team as their first point of help. Please see the link below for more information on support for carers.
