We are delighted to say that we have achieved a Gold Plus award for carer’s support for three years running. This award is in recognition of our hard work in providing services for our patients who are Carers and to help them in the role they take on when supporting a loved one.
At the Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership we hold a Carers’ register and any patient who is a Carer can register on this by collecting a pack from the reception team, completing the form and returning to reception. We will then notify Carers Support Wiltshire which is an organisation providing relevant information and advice, a regular newsletter and offers local support services. You can also register as a Carer by completing our “Register a Carer” form on our website.
We also hold Carers Support Clinics during the year and all Carers will be invited by letter to book an appointment if they wish to. The appointment includes a 20 minute appointment with our Heath Care Assistant and a 20 minute appointment with Carers Support Wiltshire to offer support, advice and information as required.
We are also able to offer carers flexible appointments with all our clinical staff, to suit their needs as we understand that looking after your own health can be challenging when caring for someone else, and that your time is limited. For more information, or to book an appointment, please contact our reception team.
