Support for Carers
You could be looking after a family member, friend or neighbour of any age, who through physical or mental illness, disability, addiction or frailty cannot manage without your help. If so, you are a carer, and your surgery can offer you support from the GP Carer Support Adviser. Even if you don’t see yourself as a ‘carer’, if you are looking after someone who could not cope without your support, help is available.
