Are you a Carer
A carer is someone of any age who, unpaid is looking after a relative , friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled, has mental health problems, or misuses drugs or alcohol. There are more than 108,000 carers in Hertfordshire, over 10% of the counties population. Carers need support to ensure they do not suffer ill-health so they can continue their role as partners in patient care.
Please let us know if you are a carer so we can add you to our register of carers. A practice nurse will be contacting the carers registered with us to offer a referral for support and funded breaks. Once referred you will be offered tailored support to your situation.
If you would like to be referred for the wide range of support available to you please book an appointment to speak to one of our practice nurses. Nurse Sandra is our Carer Champion and can refer you for support. Please do not hesitate to contact her.
