Keeping fit and well
Does your GP know you are a Carer?
Each GP practice has a link worker who aims to identify and support Carers. Carers are encouraged to register with their doctor as ‘a Carer’ to ensure their needs are met.
To make your GP surgery aware you are a Carer, request a Registration of Carer form from the Cheshire and Warrington Carers Centre. Complete and hand it in to your GP surgery.
The surgery will make a note on your medical records.
For information, advice or support for Carers, contact Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust on 0800 085 0307.
