- About Us
Ensure your digital and hard copy information areas have relevant information for carers of all ages.
Nearly three quarters of carers do not identify themselves as carers. Carers may be struggling and unaware that there is practical and emotional support available and tailored to reflect their individual needs. Having appropriate carer information in the surgery will help an individual recognise they themselves are a carer and inform them how to access support.
Carers have told us that they realised they were a carer when they saw a poster in a GP surgery – they really do work!
Carers Support West Sussex have created a monthly carer newsletter in word. You can add your surgery branding and any extra information relevant to your practice and distribute to carers registered with you. Contact the team to be added to the circulation list.
