GPs

Working together with GP Practices

Very often it’s the practice staff who identify a person is a carer during a visit to their surgery.

How we can help:

  • Provide carer awareness training for your staff; either face to face or online awareness training available
  • Provide a suite of information resources, including leaflets, posters and digital displays
  • Attend practice meetings to update staff on our services
  • Attend special clinics (e.g. ‘flu clinics) to raise carer awareness

Health and Social Care Professionals

As a professional you are usually working in an environment where you come into contact with people who are carers, or about to become a carer.  We need your help to identify more carers in our communities to ensure they are receiving information and support throughout their caring journey.

Please get in touch if you need some of our general information leaflets, hospital services leaflets, carer recognition tools or any other resource that will help you to promote our service.
