Carers

DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE who can't look after themselves, then please let the sugery know. We may be able to help?

If you provide unpaid support to a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems, you are a carer.

Caring for a relative or friend is a wonderful and rewarding thing to do but can also be a lonely and isolating experience. If you have noticed that you are feeling more stressed or less happy than usual and need some support please get in touch with the surgery on 01342 822131 and book a routine GP appointment to discuss your needs. We are committed to helping you maintain your own health as well as helping you care.

Did you know that as an unpaid Carer you are entitled to a free NHS flu jab to protect yourself and those you care for?

The practice offers advice and support to carers – please ask a receptionist who can provide further information on local help available to you.

Care for the Carers is an independent charity who have been supporting unpaid carers in East Sussex since 1989. Their team of staff and volunteers can provide free practical and emotional advice – face to face, by telephone or online.

Care for the Cares run a number of different support groups. Apart from the 'Young Adult Support Group' there is no need to book a place, if you are a Carer you are welcome to just turn up.

To find out more or get the details of their groups, including dates and venues, click here for their website, call 01323 738390, text 07860 077300 or email info@cftc.org.uk.
