Do you look after a family member or friend who couldn’t manage without your help?

Perhaps you look after someone who is frail, ill, has a disability, mental ill health, or substance misuse issues?

Maybe you care for a child with a learning or physical disability?

If you are, then its important that your GP knows about it. Ask to speak with one of our Carer Links.  You can complete an online Carer Registration Form and we can make a note on your records that you care for someone as well as on the records of the person you care for.

By registering as a carer you will also be able to access a range of information, support and advice services. You will receive a regular newsletter, be able to access the Emergency Card service as well as other services such as respite, and emotional and financial support.

For more information about services available to you call

Optician Services

Optician Services

If you are having problems with your eyes, visiting an optician is the best place to start.

Optometrists are highly trained to recognise abnormalities and conditions that could be causing your eye problems. They will prescribe and fit glasses and contact lenses, and, if necessary, they will refer you to a GP or a hospital eye clinic for further investigations.

Dental Services

Dental Services

Everyone should be able to access good-quality NHS dental services. There is no need to register with a dentist in the same way as with a GP because you are not bound to a catchment area.
