If you're a carer, we would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding your Carers' Health Check, whether you have had one or not. If you haven't had one and would like to receive one, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery and book in with one of the clinicians. Thank you for all your hard work!

Are you a carer or cared for? Do you care for someone who could not manage without you or are you someone that is cared for?
It is important that carers stay as fit and healthy as possible. We want to help carers however we can only do this if you let us know you are a carer and register yourself as a carer using the Carer Registration Form (see below).
Under NHS regulations all GPs are required to compile a register of carers. This identifies carers and their needs so that support can be offered when needed if you care for a relative, friend or neighbour who is dependent on that help. The person being cared for may be handicapped, have a debilitating physical or mental illness or be in frail health and can be any age.
We may be able to help you and ensure that your own health needs are met in the most appropriate way. To do this please register with us as a carer:
- Use our online Carer Registration form
- Pick up the form at reception and complete it there.
North Yorkshire County Council are running a scheme for carers if they have an accident and cannot identify themselves. The carer's emergency card identifies you as a carer if you have an accident or cannot identify yourself. It is the size of a credit card.
The scheme offers 24-hour emergency cover, so if anything happens to you while you are out or you are suddenly taken ill at home we will get in touch with your identified emergency contact(s) or take appropriate action. Anyone over 18 who cares for someone in North Yorkshire can apply for a card.
