Carers

Are You A Carer?

elderley_lady_bpcheckUnpaid carers do a vital job and often people in a caring role do not consider themselves to be carers, especially if they are looking after somebody close to them, such as a relative, partner or friend.  It is just “something they do”.  

There are many services available to anyone who spends time caring in this way.  St Peter's keeps a computer register of carers and this will help to alert us to the fact that you may sometimes require help and support to focus on your own healthcare needs, as we know these are often overlooked.

If you are an unpaid carer and would like your name to be placed on our register, please give your name and details to one of our receptionists.

It can be helpful for us to know who you care for and whether they live at the same address. The person you care for does not have to be registered with us for your name to be on the register.   

 

Young people

Many carers are young people and there are services specifically for young carers.

What happens next?

When you are registered as a carer we will send you a carer's pack produced by The Carers Centre. The Carers Centre is a gateway service that can provide information, guidance and support on all sorts of issues including benefits, local services, emotional support, activities and groups, factsheets and Young Carers groups. They can also put you in touch with other carer's organisations. We have their leaflets and their poster in the waiting room.
