Are you a Carer ?
What is a carer? A carer is someone who provides regular unpaid help and support to another person (It does not include those who volunteer as part of a group or organisation).
This might be helping someone with paperwork and financial matters, housework, shopping, assisting with medication or other personal care needs such as keeping clean and fresh, preparing, and eating meals or getting out and about.
Carers can be any age, including children and young people, and from any background. Being a carer is very rewarding, but it can be hard work as well.
It is vital as a carer you get the practical, emotional, and financial support necessary to ensure you can continue in the carer role.
Here at Great North Medical Group, we wish to support our registered patients who are carers.
In line with the government requirements the practice keeps a register of all Patients who are carers. This is to ensure we can offer you the right support at the right time.
If you are a carer, please let the reception team or clinician know so it can be recorded. If you are unsure, please complete the following form and give to reception GPs A5 new .
There are at LEAST 720 young carers in Doncaster and 1 in 20 of those young carers miss school because of their caring responsibilities.
If you are a registered patient and a young carer, please let the reception team know.
Parent carers provide support to their children, including grown up children who could not manage without their help. The Child/adult can be ill, disabled or have mental health or substances misuse problems. The term family carers is used to describe carers where the child is over 18.
