Carers

Are You Caring for Someone Who Has a Long Term Health Condition? 

If so, please let our Carers Leads, Annette Hatt or Jackie Mendez know.  We may be able to give you important help and advice.  It will be helpful to the doctor to know that you are a carer as it may affect your own health and treatment. 

carersWhen you tell us that you are caring for someone we will place your details on our Carer’s Register so that practice staff are aware you are carer.  We will not share this knowledge with anyone else unless you tell us that we can.  We may be able to offer you other services to help you care for your own health. 

We will try to help you if your caring responsibilities mean that you have difficulties attending appointments. 

If you are giving regular and substantial help to the person that you care for, you may be entitled to a Social Services Carers Assessment.  The assessment gives you advice and information. 

You and the person that you care for may be entitled to practical help and support.  Contact the Social Services Department where the cared for person lives to ask for an assessment.  This is a free service. 

If the cared for person lives in Poole contact: 01202 633902 Social Services Help desk 

If the cared for person lives in Bournemouth contact: 01202 454979 Care Direct
