Carers

Does someone at home or in the neighbourhood depend on you to help with tasks and/or responsibilities of everyday living? Perhaps you care for someone in the family or for a friend? If so you ARE a carer and might like some support yourself.

You may have been caring for the person for some time already, regularly helping them with everyday tasks or giving them the sort of support they need to stay in the family home.You may see it as part of your life or duty to care for your mum or dad, but there may be times when you need extra information, advice or some extra help.

When you are a carer it is often difficult to have a real break because someone depends on you to look after them. You can get tired and run down and your health may possibly suffer.

Telling us can help to support you and make sure that you yourself get the right sort of care.

Carers themselves have felt that it is important that GPs recognise and value the work that they do as carers. The government has responded by encouraging GPs to make special arrangement for carers

At the Park Surgery we offer our registered carers the ‘Blue Flag’ Scheme.

If you are trying to book an appointment and are only able to take a call when you have someone to look after the person you care for, tell the Receptionist you are a BLUE FLAG patient. This will mean the member of staff is able to override the system and offer you an appointment that she wouldn’t normally be able to offer. Please note however this is only to be used if you genuinely need to call at that time and must not be used for routine appointments, such as medication reviews, that can be booked well in advance.

If you are a Carer, Please do not hesitate to ask reception for our Carers form so we can document you are a Carer or clink on this link  Carers ID and ref form
