If you are a child or adult who helps to support a relative, partner, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled or who has mental health or alcohol and drug problems, you are a carer.

Please complete this form and hand it, or send it to your GP’s Surgery, who will record in your notes that you are a carer. This can help your surgery provide you with help with: arranging repeat prescriptions, flu immunisation, annual health checks and arranging appointments which fit in with caring.
