Carers

Carers play a valuable role in our community and their work often goes unnoticed.  We have "Carer Packs" available within the practice which gives information about support that is available.  Please ask to speak to any member of staff at the practice who will be able to signpost you to the most appropriate service for your needs.

Carers Northumberland is an organisation specifically dealing with carer issues in our area, why not access their website for more information.

If you spend all or part of your time looking after someone who depends on you because of illness, disability or frailty, then Carers Northumberland is here to support you. 

Registering with carers Northumberland is FREE

Their website can be found at: www.carersnorthumberland.org.uk

They are a friendly group of carers and former carers who meet every month over a cup of tea or coffee for a chat and to share experiences
