We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can. If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone your role is very important we want to ensure you get all the support you need. Please inform reception.
What is Carer?
A Carer is someone who, without payment provides help and support to a family member, partner or friend who could not manage otherwise because of frailty, long term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse.
If you are a carer you are entitled to an annual health check and influenza vaccination? Please contact our reception staff to arrange an appointment.
We can also refer you to Sunderland Carers Centre for any support and advice. Please enquire at reception.
