GP Practices – support for carers – what to expect

It is useful to let your GP practice know that you are a carer. This can help them to provide you with, information, support and convenient appointment times.

As a Carer, you are entitled to an annual flu vaccine and a health check.

Each GP practice in Somerset has:

  • A “Carers Champion” who can help you to find the information and support you need.
  • A carers noticeboard which displays useful information about caring.
