Do you look after someone close who could not manage without you?


if so, you may be a carer?


Carers provide help and support to a partner, relative, child, friend or neighbour who could not manage without help due to physical or mental ilness, disability, life limiting illness or addiction and to the older and vulnerable.


Get the help you deserve. Your GP is there to help you.


You can speak to the reception staff either face to face or via the telephone to simply identify yourself as a carer or you can discuss this with your doctor or nurse if you would prefer. Once the practice is aware that you are a carer we will be able to offer you further assistance, such as free carers pack and a free flu vaccination(s).


Visit http://www.carersmatternorfolk.org.uk/ for further support, guidance or general information about being a carer - or you can talk directly to Carers Matter Norfolk on their website through the online chat service.
