Carers and Primary Care

Working together, we aim to make it as easy as possible for you to identify carers in primary care, support their health needs and refer them to us for wider practical and emotional support.

This portal provides our primary care partners with a dedicated GP referral route, quick links, and key resources to embed carer friendly practice, upskill staff and connect with us.

Please make use of our Toolkit: Identifying and Supporting Carers in Primary Care and contact the Primary Care Engagement Team with any queries you may have. Primary care professionals have a crucial role in identifying carers early in their caring journey and connecting them to targeted support. Please seek consent and refer carers to us here.
