Do you look after a family member or friend who couldn’t manage without your help?
Perhaps you look after someone who is frail, ill, has a disability, mental ill health, or substance misuse issue?
Maybe you care for a child with a learning or physical disability?
If you are, then its important that your GP knows about it, ask to speak with one of our Carer Links. You can complete a registration form to let your GP know you are a carer: Click GP Leaflet July 2018 to access the form. By completing the form and handing this back at Reception we can make a note on your records that you care for someone as well as on the records of the person you care for.
By registering as a carer, you will also be able to access a range of information, support and advice services from Cheshire West Carer Support. You will receive a regular newsletter, be able to access the Emergency Card service as well as other services such as respite, and emotional and financial support.
For more information about services available to you call
Cheshire West Carer Support Helpline on 0300 102 0008 (Monday-Friday 9-5pm)
