Carers

Are you a carer?

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

Anyone could be a carer – a 15-year-old girl looking after a parent with an alcohol problem, a 40-year-old man caring for his partner who has terminal cancer, or an 80-year-old woman looking after her husband who has Alzheimer’s disease.

The Carers Trust has information on Carers: https://carers.org/what-carer

Download the “Does my GP know you are a carer?” leaflet. If you complete the form and return to one of our surgeries reception so that we can register you as a carer.

We are keen to support our carers and we have close links with the Cheshire and Warrington Carers Centre.
