Carers and young carers

Are you looking after or providing support for a relative friend or neighbour? Are you being helped or supported by a relative friend or neighbour? Your GP needs to know so you can be offered the right information, support and access to services. GP surgeries have to compile information for the government about the numbers of carers attached to the surgery so your information will help them to do this. Its a great way to reach out and get support. Why not visit Wigan and Leigh carers website also for more info.

Young Carers Postcard

A young carer is someone under the age of 24 who helps look after someone with a disability, illness, mental ill health, or drug or alcohol problem. These can be family members, friends or loved ones. If you feel you may fall into the criteria, again please reach out and get in touch. There is a lot of support available from the practice and the local carers centre.
