The practice wishes to identify those patients who are Carers to others and also those of our patients who are Cared for by someone so that they receive the appropriate level of help from us.

For example, a Carer may have difficulty accessing a convenient appointment time to fit in with teir caring duties, similarly a person who is cared for may have the same problem.

The receptionist will treat requests for appointments in these circumstances sensitively and will endeavour to meet the patients needs.
