Carers Events & activities
We are delighted to have restarted out events for carers. Please see the newsletter below for what is coming up!
On Friday 8th October we had a very interesting local history walk, followed by a well-deserved bowl of soup at The Dusthole / Railway Inn. Many thanks to historian George Fleming who gave his time and expertise for free, and who told us lots of fascinating stories! Also many thanks to the pub who very kindly supported the practice by providing lunch for free.
Are You A Carer?
If you provide unpaid help or support to a relative, partner, friend or neighbour who could not manage without you, then you are a carer.
Recognising yourself as a carer can be the gateway to getting a range of help and support to allow you to continue your caring role.
Take a look at our information leaflet for carers below, and don't forget to let us know about your caring role.
We work closely with Carer Support Wiltshire, you can access their website at http://carersinwiltshire.co.uk/
Please contact Clare Christopher or Lyn Seymour for more information:
Clare Christopher - Patient Support Lead - Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Lyn Seymour - Receptionist - Endless Street - Tuesday and Thursday.
Carers' Clinics are run regularly throughout the year and are open to anyone who cares for another person. At the clinic you get a general health check with one of the Nursing Team, then a session with a representative from Carers Support Wiltshire who will be able to give you all sorts of support and advice. If you would like to come along, please ask our receptionists who will put you in touch with the organiser.
