Support for carers
At Malpas Surgery we recognises that carers have a key role to play in supporting the care provided and in helping the practice to understand the needs of the person they care for. We also recognise that many carers find their health suffers as a consequence of the strains of caring. Information sharing with carers is essential for the successful delivery of care.
Does your GP know you are a Carer?
Please make sure that you tell us if you are a carer as we can add this to your notes. This is useful to ensure that you access the care you need, for example in recent years, some carers have be eligible for additional COVID vaccinations.
A carers notice board is provided in the reception area with a range of publicity materials. A Carers Information Pack is available on request from reception. It consists of leaflets, including information on access to additional services, benefits, disability law etc. We can also signpost you to the Carers Trust. Our point of contact at the practice for carers is Ms Helen Mountjoy.
