Recognising the role of carers
We recognise the vital and often invisible role of carers. Our practice has approximately 800 patients who also act as carers for partners, family members or friends. You may find it helpful to let us know you are a carer, or that you have a carer, so that we can take that into account when trying to help you. For example, you may need a doctor's appointment at a certain time to fit in with your caring responsibilities, and if we are aware of that we can do our best to help.
We can also refer you to our colleagues in Carers Leeds, a specialist voluntary organisation which provides advice, support and assistance to anyone who is a carer.
Ask any of our staff for more details or complete a "yellow card" (available at reception) to register as a carer at our practice.
