Care in the community is increasing and we are aware that the number of carers is rising.
Caring for a disabled friend or relative has been shown to be harmful to the health of the care giver.
The shift from hospital to community-based care puts additional pressure on the carer and the community services.
In an attempt to identify the carer, if you are looking after an adult or a child with a disability we would like you to inform the practice either by letting the clerical staff or doctors know.
As a result of this we will be in a position to provide information about available support, benefits and local services.
