Registering as an Unpaid Carer

We encourage all patients who act as the sole or primary carer for a family member or friend in an unpaid capacity to register as a carer to be entitled to support.

If we know you are a carer we can:

  • support you with any physical health issues related to your caring role
  • make you aware of the carer’s flu jab each year
  • priority access to the COVID Vaccine
  • provide you with general information and advice
  • refer you to helpful organisations and services that can improve your caring situation
  • be more flexible with appointment times that suit your caring role

As part of the process of registering as a carer, we make a note in your medical record of this status.

To register with us as a carer, please complete the below form and return it to reception.
