Does your GP know you are a Carer?

Our Carer Link Worker works closely with GP practices to raise awareness of Carers. We encourage Carers to register with their doctors as ‘Carers’ to ensure their particular needs are met.

To make your GP surgery aware you are a Carer, request a Registration of Carer form from the Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust, complete and hand in to your GP surgery.

The surgery will make a note of this on your medical records.

To request a form please call our Freephone Helpline on 0300 102 0008

Our Helpline is Available Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm on 0300 102 0008
