CYBER ATTACK ON NHS

THE PRACTICE WOULD LIKE TO THANK PATIENTS FOR THEIR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE DURING WHAT HAS BEEN A DIFFICULT TIME DUE TO PROBLEMS CREATED BY THE RECENT CYBER ATTACK ON THE NHS. SOME PARTS OF THE SERVICE ARE STILL UNDER PRESSURE BUT WE ARE CONTINUING TO PROVIDE A NORMAL SERVICE AT THE SURGERY.

ARE YOU A CARER?

Are you an unpaid carer? If you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled in some way, even on a part time basis you may be considered to be a carer. Please let us know if you think this could apply to you. We can supply information on help available to carers. Any one of the above would be a definition of a carer. Young people, (5-25) who are looking after parents or members of their family with disabilties are recognised as carers. They can also let us know, or a teacher at school who could let us know on their behalf, if they are responsible for helping someone with day to day care.

If you feel that this may apply to you, please identify yourself as a carer to a member of staff at the surgery. This can be done discreetly and it can be to any one you feel comfortable talking to, or ask for our carer lead in the practice, which is Yvonne Kelly.  By doing this it enables us to offer help in providing information and advice on how to get healthcare and support for you and the person you care for.

Even if you do not require support at the present time, it is useful to know what is available to carers should your circumstances change.
