GP Surgeries

Let your GP practice know that you are a carer and ask if this can be registered on your medical record. All GP practices are required to keep a Carers Register, which is a list of patients who are providing unpaid care and support to a family member or friend living with a long-term health condition.


In addition to this, your practice may also offer:


Patient Reference Groups:

Most GP practices have a PRG or Patient Reference Group (previously known as a Patient Participation Group), which is a group of patients who meet at regular intervals with staff to discuss practice affairs and is an excellent way of having a voice and being involved in helping your practice to be the best it can. Anyone is welcome to join – get in touch with your practice for more information.
