Do you look after someone / Are you a Carer?
A carer is someone who provides substantial unpaid care and support to a relative, partner, neighbour or friend, who cannot manage on their own. You do not have to live with the person, nor do you have to be the only person who provides care. The practice recognises that the general medical needs of the Carer are different from the general practice population and we endeavour to ensure that you Carers receive the most appropriate care and support.
We are keen to identify Carers of all ages, including young Carers (under 18 yrs), and hold a register of all our patients who are Carers.
If you are a Carer, please ask at receptionist for a Carers Registration Form. When completed your details will be added to the register and your Caring status will also be recorded in your computer record. You will also receive information on Bridgend Carers Centre.
Please e-mail completed form to: practice.manager.W95012@wales.nhs.uk
