It is important to register as a Carer with your GP Practice. Ask for it to be recorded on your Medical Records and their Carers Register.
Even if you are at a different practice to the person you carer for – register at your surgery, this will make sure that your caring role and responsibilities are recognised and considered, maybe offering home visits where possible, more convenient appointment times etc.
GPs will automatically call all carers on their register for a free annual flu jab.
You can nominate your GP or the GP Practice for this year’s GP Awards – ring 01432 356068 for more details.
