Are you a carer? You may not think of yourself as a carer. A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
The carers health check is the same as the NHS Health Check but is about looking after you as a Carer. It will focus on your own health and wellbeing and whether there are any areas you need support with. It is a chance to talk about your concerns and hopes for the future. The check covers the questions which Carers have told us are important.
You should have an annual carers check, please either book your own appointment via “myGP” or send us a message using our online form on this website, or telephone one of our receptionists who will be happy to help you.
