Carer Support and Services
WHO IS A CARER
This short video - produced by Carer Support Wiltshire - very clearly explains who a carer is - and highlights that many, many of our patients may not recognise themselves as being carers.
Our network practices all want to ensure that carers are not left to manage on their own - that we know who they are, who they care for - and that we can adapt and support our services to ensure carers are able to look after themselves
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR CARERS
Each practice has a Carer Champion who works within the practice team to ensure any patient who either identifies themselves, or who we identify, as a carer is offered the chance to have their record annotated with their status as a carer as well as the opportunity to know about and register with East Riding of Yorkshire Carer Support Service.
