Carers Information


If you are a carer, please remember to:

* Tell us, either when you first register with the Practice or any time afterwards. Just tell the Receptionist and they will add a note to your record so that you are added to our Carer Register.

* Ask for a consent form for the person you are caring for to sign.  With this on record, you will be able to make appointments and prescription requests for them.

* Accept your free annual flu jab.

* Tell your GP how you are doing and if you need any help.

Gloucestershire Carers Hub has a variety of resources that carers may find useful, including contact numbers should you need some support yourself.

Visit their website, or contact them directly on 0300 111 9000.

Please download their What's On newsletter for activities across the county to support carers, taking place in January and February next year.

People Plus offers information and guidance to carers.

There is a wealth of information on the NHS Website 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?
