Carer’s week: 11-17 June 2018

Carer’s week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges that Carers face and recognise the contribution they make.

The Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership would like to know if you are a Carer so we can help to support you. A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid regular support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. We hold a Carer’s register and any patient who is a Carer can register by completing the Carer’s registration form on the Administration Office section of our website or call into either Marlborough or Pewsey Surgery and collect a Carer’s pack to complete and return to us. We then notify Carer’s Support Wiltshire and a support worker will make contact with the Carer and offer relevant information and advice.

You can fill in our Register a Carer form or Wiltshire Carers can be contacted on their website: www.carersinwiltshire.co.uk or call 0800 181 4118
